Biloxi leaders vote in favor of employee furlough days

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Biloxi employees will have to take unpaid days to help keep the city's budget on track. After a couple of weeks of back and forth on the issue, the city council voted four to three Tuesday in favor of making workers take six furlough days this fiscal year.

Employees taking one day off without pay every other month will save the city a little more than $600,000.
