Coleman Says Lay-offs Needed to Balance City Budget
Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman Friday announced 42 lay-offs and 60 open positions that will not be filled as the city tries to avoid a budget deficit.
In a memo dated August 1st, he cited higher costs for fuel and lower income tax revenues as driving the economic challenges faced by the city.
Coleman called on department directors to hold the line on fuel usage and find other ways to save money to make sure police, fire and refuse collection have enough fuel to run their vehicles.
The mayor also called on other elected city officials to trim their spending by 2.5 percent.
