Concord Community Pool,will be will be closed Nov. 25-26, but open holiday hours from 10 a.m. to noon Nov. 27. Diablo Creek Golf Course will close at 2 p.m. Thanksgiving Day..These Furlough days are due to the fact of budget cuts. City employees are having to take 13 unpaid days off to account for a 5% pay cut. Concord is not the only place effected many city's are feeling the money pinch due to housing markets dropping and overall city spending being very low......... A's-SmokeScreen-A's ...............
