Job cuts expected at Thursday special meeting
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – More than two dozen city positions could be eliminated at a special meeting of the city council this week.
The council will meet Thursday night to discuss and possibly adopt the city’s 2011-2012 budget. South Lake Tahoe is facing at least a $3.9 million deficit in the 2011-2012 budget, according to staff estimates.
City Manger Tony O’Rourke has proposed eliminating 26 city positions, vacating five positions and cutting the hours of four positions as part of measures to close the budget gap. Closed session labor negotiations will precede Thursday’s meeting.
The open session portion of the meeting is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at Lake Tahoe Airport.
