Honolulu city worker furloughs begin Friday

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Five thousand city and county workers will be off, without pay, every other Friday. That means dozens of city offices will be closed, including Honolulu and Kapolei Hale, satellite city halls, even gyms and swimming pools.

But there will be no changes to police, fire and lifeguard services. Garbage pickup and The Bus are not affected. The move will save about $43 million a year.
