City workers in Denham Springs are about to get a longer weekend. According to reports, the city council voted to shift to a four day work week. The change will start Monday.

The move will give nearly 100 employees a permanent 3 day weekend, but will only apply to workers in city hall.
Police, fire fighters, and court workers will keep the same schedule. Officials said the extra day off would save the city energy and fuel costs.
