Budget Cuts Force Genesee Co. To Lay Off 12 7-01-2010

A dozen Genesee County workers are being axed in the budget that was approved Thursday.
But the news is much better than the 64 layoffs that were expected last week.
The health department was hit the hardest, losing five people.
“We have lived to fight another day, we're still standing, but Genesee County is a challenged community,” said Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton. “[We need to] roll up our sleeves and work even harder than we have been.”
The cuts had to be made after a judge ruled that county commissioners violated contracts by making employees take several unpaid furlough days.
The judge ordered county to pay the workers $1.6 million in back pay by the end of September.
