Quinlivan proposes days off for city workers to save jobs

MADISONVILLE, OH (FOX19) -

Local residents had their final chance to weigh in on Cincinnati's $35 million budget deficit on Wednesday evening.

In addition, Councilwoman Laure Quinlivan made a new proposal during the meeting as an effort to fill the budget gap. 

With the proposal, all city workers would be forced to take eight furlough days.

Quinlivan says her plan would avoid layoffs for police, fire and other city workers. In addition, it would avoid a 15% cut to the city parks.

By law, the city sent out layoff notices to 66 police officers, 71 firefighters and 64 support workers this week.

If Cincinnati administration cannot reach a budget deal by June 1, the layoff notices will take effect on June 9.
