St. Louis City Hall could close an hour early each week -- at 4 p.m. every Friday -- under a proposal suggested yesterday by Comptroller Darlene Green.

The city is looking to offset a projected $45 million budget deficit projected for next year.

Having City Hall employees clock out an hour early each week would save about $3 million, according to Green.
