ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some employees at the Housing Authority are getting a shorter work week.

On Tuesday night, the Housing Authority Board approved a four-day work week for property and maintenance staff.

They'll work 10-hour days.

Leaders tested out the change at one facility and said that it worked well.

"Most of them are really excited about it and thinking why have you waited so long. They've been wanting this for quite some time so a big part of why we're doing this is for the morale of our employees," said Albany Housing Authority Executive Director Dan McCarthy.

Office and management staff will continue to work 8 to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 to 11 on Fridays. 

The change will take effect on October 1.
