The approaching winter storm has prompted Mayor Annise Parker to announce non-essential city workers will not have to report to work on Friday.
However, Parker says those workers will not be paid.
She says Friday will be considered a furlough day for city employees.
As you may recall the city is facing a $53 million budget gap.
Parker ordered city employees to take 6 furlough days by Saturday June.
Essential workers like police and fire will still report to work!
