Cornwall Council have started the year with another cost saving initiative by preventing "...offices from being opened, staffed, heated etc. on one day between the BH on 1st Jan and the weekend."
In order to save money all offices were closed and staff given an additional day's holiday on Friday 2nd January. If they had to work that day then they will have until the end of the month to take another day off in lieu.
I have asked the Council how much money was saved.
