|Baltimore City officials have moved a scheduled furlough day to Tuesday to give city employees a chance to pay their respects to William Donald Schaefer.
The former three-term mayor and two-term Maryland governor died Monday. His body will lie in repose at Baltimore’s City Hall from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday.
The furlough day was previously scheduled for Friday, May 27.
Ryan O’Doherty, a spokesman for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, says Tuesday will be the best chance for thousands of city employees to pay their respects because seats will be hard to come by at Schaefer’s funeral on Wednesday.
On the Mandatory Furlough day – Tuesday, April 26, 2011:
Trash and recycling, both curbside and City containers, WILL BE COLLECTED as usual.
