WILLMAR -- Kandiyohi County employees -- from the top administrator to clerical workers -- will be taking one day off without pay this year to compensate for Gov. Tim Pawlenty's unallotment of funds.

Next year, workers will take two days off without pay, for savings of about $158,000. The unpaid furloughs also apply to elected statutory officers: The county attorney, recorder, surveyor and auditor.
