City of East St. Louis hit hard with furloughs

(KMOV)- The city of East St. Louis will put some employees on unpaid furloughs.

About 70 city workers will have to take one unpaid day off every 2 weeks from August to December.

The city said its budget is $650,000 short, in part because of dwindling revenues from the Casino Queen.

The Queen provides about half the city's budget.
