FAIRBANKS - A voluntary furlough saved the University of Alaska Fairbanks tens of thousands of dollars.
Officials said the campus saved at least $80,000 in payroll and energy costs during its voluntary furlough before the holiday break last year.
UAF encouraged employees to take a three-day unpaid leave just before Christmas. The three days were at the beginning of the regular break.
Some departments either shut down or had reduced hours during the closure.
