COMMISSIONERS PREPARE FOR POSSIBLE LAYOFFS

July 29, 2011

The Grays Harbor County Commissioners will hold another special meeting today, this time clearing the way for possible layoffs.  With the county facing a $734-thousand deficit, which Commission Chair Terry Willis says could see more than $50-thousand added on, department heads have been ordered to trim three-percent from their 2011 budget and treat the new level as the baseline to begin their 2012 budgets.  As a result, the commissioners will meet this afternoon to vote on authorizing Willis to sign layoff possible notices.  Department heads will have their new budget numbers back to the commissioners by August 12 and the new levels will go into effect in September.
