“We, like everyone else, are competing for employees in both the public and private sectors, and as an organization, we need to continue to adapt to the needs of the modern workforce.” Mayor Mark Huffner said in a tweet on Tuesday.
Huffner said he hopes to improve “efficiencies in areas such as public works and park maintenance” by moving labor four days a week.
The Keller City Council will meet on October 2, 2022 to provide feedback and decide whether to continue with the new work schedule.
