Mayor announces 45 city layoffs

Report by Rob Wiercinski - email

TOLEDO (WTOL) - After a holiday toy event on Wednesday, Mayor Finkbeiner revealed there will likely be 45 permanent layoffs of city employees to fill the $3 million hole that remains in the 2009 budget.

He went on to say financial forecasters are projecting 2009 to be even worse than this year, and it's possible the city will have to revisit the issue of layoffs sometime during the 2009 calendar year.

"I think there's a distinct possibility that at mid-year we might be looking at additional lost revenue and have to figure out how we're going to deal with that lost revenue," Finkbeiner said.

The mayor says layoff notices will likely be delivered within the next 7-10 days.
