OROVILLE, Calif. -- After nearly ten months of furloughs, it's back to business as usual at Oroville City Hall.

This is the first Friday city services were offered since May of last year.

The city had implemented Furlough Fridays to cut costs.

City officials say those savings along with the passage of "Measure U," a sales tax hike, allowed them to get back to a normal schedule.

"Certainly the more time we're open, the better for availability for planned checking and permits and just all around questions. People like to see, they want to talk to someone personally, they don't want to get an automated phone message or not see someone. They want to speak face to face," said Oroville Mayor Chuck Reynolds.

"Measure U" takes effect April 1st.

The city says it will start seeing revenue as early as July.

The Oroville city council will also establish a citizens committee to oversee the spending of "Measure U" dollars.
