Crow Tribe furloughs expected to affect about 100 employees

The Crow Tribe will be furloughing some employees because of a revenue shortage from coal sales, Chairman Darrin Old Coyote said Friday.

The furloughs are expected to affect about 25 percent, or an estimated 100 employees, of the 400 employees funded through the tribe’s general fund budget, Old Coyote said.

The chairman also responded on Friday to reports that the tribe had been notified in early 2014 by its former accountant of serious financial problems and that it had misappropriated $2.5 million in federal money intended for a transit building that never got built.
