To save money, one Coast mayor is bringing back flip phones for city employees

Mayor Mario King has rounded up smartphones at City Hall.

And he reissued flip phones to department heads and other workers he thought needed them. The days of running around with that kind of expensive and unnecessary equipment may be over.

Out of a budget that is millions, he said, he expects to save thousands in the coming years, but that’s worth it.
