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.
