Sanjos city employees must work from home on Friday to save energy

The city of Saint-Josten-Noord in Brussels has made it mandatory for all city employees to work from home every Friday to save energy.

A compulsory work-from-home day was imposed as the municipal electricity bill doubled to €3 million a year.

The measure was approved by the Emergency Board this week and will take effect on October 14, until further notice.

A spokesman for Saint-José mayor Emile Quir told Bulls, “These are not good measures.” “But if the situation does not improve, we will have to take more. Unfortunately, we want to keep our staff working, so we have no choice.”

As a result, the Sant José Town Hall on Astronomy Street and the Administrative Center on Royal Street will be closed on Fridays.

The closure will result in three consecutive days of low energy consumption in a week in San José, with an estimated 20% reduction in energy consumption.

A spokesperson said the closure should not affect public services, but “we may need to refine our system in the coming weeks.”
