Committee balances 2012 Manitowoc budget. Plan eliminates 57 positions. (Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter, 12/16/2011)
Excerpt: Concluding lengthy deliberations this week, an ad hoc committee Thursday evening restructured city government and will present a balanced 2012 budget for approval to the City Council Monday night.
But $3.75 million in personnel savings comes with a significant price — the elimination of 57 positions, with about 40 people losing their jobs involuntarily.
The remaining cuts will come via attrition through anticipated retirements and not filling vacancies.
Current number of City of Manitowoc employees:
- 274 full-time
- 76 part-time
