Clermont Co. closing JFS for 10 days

Posted by Trina Edwards - email

BATAVIA, OH (FOX19) - The Clermont County Department of Job and Family Services announced Friday that it will implement a series of 10 unpaid cost savings days as a way to help offset a more than 20 percent cut in state funding. 

On these dates in 2009 and 2010, the local DJFS offices will be closed.

"To minimize the impact of this situation on our customers, we have tried to select closure dates that are traditionally among our slowest business days," said DJFS Director Tim McCartney. 

McCartney said the decision to close the offices will save an estimated $400,000 in salaries with additional savings linked to building operations.

The announced DJFS closures are:

  • Friday, September 11, 2009
  • Monday, October 12, 2009
  • Thursday, December 24, 2009
  • Thursday, December 31, 2009
  • Friday, February 12, 2010
  • Friday, March 12, 2010
  • Friday, April 2, 2010
  • Friday, April 30, 2010
  • Friday, May 28, 2010
  • Friday, June 11, 2010

The Clermont County Department of Job and Family Services receives the majority of its funding from state and federal sources. This is one of many steps DJFS has implemented to address budget cuts. 

The department has previously reduced costs through the attrition of more than 20 staff members, agency restructuring, voluntary reductions in work hours, and reduced agency contracts.
