LUCAS COUNTY, Ohio (WTOL) - The Lucas County commissioners approved 19 layoffs Tuesday as a way to curb the growing budget deficit.

Commissioner Tina Skeldon Wozniak says the layoffs were carefully planned across the board so residents would not notice a change in service.

The 19 layoffs approved include:

  • 12 custodial workers
  • 3 certified inspectors
  • 2 laborers
  • 1 permit specialist
  • 1 account specialist

The layoffs have been approved, but commissioners hope to continue working with the budget to get the definite number of layoffs down to 10.
