PR City Council moves meetings to noon hour as cost-cutting measure

Email

In keeping with the idea to be creative in saving money, the Park Rapids City Council will now meet during the day to save on overtime pay for employees.

The measure should save about $7,500 in overtime pay per year, said city administrator Bill Smith. Department heads attend most of the council's meetings. By having meetings during the regular workday, the council hopes to cut overtime costs.
