LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Cache County officials are looking at following the state's plan for a four-day workweek.

Instead of the standard eight-hour days, workers would put in 10, but only for four days a week.

About 17,000 state employees will go to the four-day week next month. Gov. Jon Huntsman proposed the move, saying it could help cut energy costs and commuter expenses.

But some county officials say residents who want to take care of some business on a weekday will be unhappy to find a public agency closed for the day.

The County Council is gathering information to study the idea.
