Hartford’s Mayor Announces 14 Layoffs; 5 Positions Eliminated

Hartford’s mayor has announced the city has laid off 14 employees and eliminated another five positions as part of his budget-balancing effort.  The moves are expected to save the city about $700,000.

In addition, non-union employees making more than $45,000 a year will be required to take furlough days.

In his statement, Mayor Pedro Segarra  says the average salary of those being laid off is $71,660.  He says he had hoped to cut a million dollars from the budget through furlough days alone, but says several city unions rejected furloughs.
