City of Paducah approves cost cutting plan

By Heartland News

PADUCAH KY (KFVS) - The city of Paducah approved a new plan to help cut back costs Tuesday night.

The city had planned on cutting 14 jobs.

The savings will total $2 million, but it will also cut jobs.

The operational efficiency plan suggests: employee layoffs, merging public works and engineering departments, merging human resource and finance, temporarily reducing the fire department manning from 17 to 16, leaving vacant positions unfilled,and reducing city funding for human rights from $105,000 to $50,000.

CJ Cassidy is in Paducah looking into the city's new plan and will have more on this story later tonight on Heartland News at Six.
