“Alternative” work week studied

Would you rather work five eight-hour days, or four 10-hour days?

When the Garden Grove City Council meets on Tuesday, it will consider a proposal by Councilmember George Brietigam (District 1) to provide incentives to businesses in the city to offer “alternative” work schedules.

As proposed by Brietigam, qualifying businesses would get a five percent rebate from the business license tax for participating. When he introduced the idea at the most recent council meeting, he said it was a “quality of life” issue that could also reduce traffic and air pollution.

Also on the agenda are:

  • an information update on the Community Center Engagement project involving renovation or expansion of the city’s police facility on Acacia Parkway;
  • introduction and first reading of a proposed ordinance prohibiting the unlawful possession of catalytic converters in the city, or the repair and sales of bicycles on public property.

The council will meet in person in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave. at 6:30 p.m.

  1. 5/8 or 4/10, I don’t care. Just respond to our concerns with more than “we are reviewing your report”. In the mean time big box trucks are parking overnight in our neighborhoods, trash cans are being stored in front yards, debris collects on side yards and litter tossed from moving cars piles up.
