DIBOLL, TX —
Following a trend that other Angelina County cities such as Huntington and Zavalla have adopted, the Diboll City Council on Tuesday approved a plan modifying the work week for city employees from a five-day, eight-hours-a-day schedule to a compressed four-day, 10-hours-a-day schedule.
The council decided on a five-month trail period for the new schedule starting April 30.
City departments that will be affected by the 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday schedule include administration, municipal court, water, sewer, streets, code enforcement, park maintenance, civic center and golf course maintenance. The golf course schedule and police department would be unaffected. Employees in the water, sewer, streets and park maintenance departments as well as the civic center would still be available on an “on-call” basis after hours, according to city officials.
