City Hall To Start Downsizing its Staff
The Georgetown Mayor and City Council is reporting that in order for it to survive a step will have to be taken to downsize its staff. City Mayor, Hamilton Green said the move will be necessary since the council is finding it hard to pay workers along with other expenses.
Green noted that the council over the last few months has found it hard to keep up with its financial obligations as monies slowly trickle into City Hall. He noted that some departments will have to be reshuffled or in some cases close.
City Hall’s financial position has put its employees at a disadvantage since some workers have not been paid their salaries for months.. The workers were told that they would have been paid by mid June. It is not the first time that City Hall is finding it hard to pay workers.
Town Clerk Yonette Pluck during a media briefing said that council is hoping to ensure that all of its workers are paid by the end of this week.
Just last month City Hall was finding it hard to pay two of its major contracted garbage collectors after they withdrew their services since the council owed over 70 million dollars.
