IN an attempt to save money, Estepona town hall will write to ask its staff if they are willing to work fewer hours and be paid less.
A survey will also be carried out amongst those aged over 63 to find out if they are interested in retiring.
The aim is to find out how many people would accept these voluntary measures and calculate how mucho money could be saved for the municipal coffers.
They need to save up to €6 million per year on staff costs.
This will guarantee they can pay back a loan of €60 million requested from the central government.
They stressed that no staff will be forced to accept any of the measures and that the unions will be asked to propose measures to save money.
