As we are legally responsible for paying back the state for unemployment when we lay people off, Mr. O'Connell points out that this is going to get worse next year.
He asks if there is some way of mitigating this.
Can we lay people off later to avoid laying them off and then rehiring them?
Mr. O'Connell wants us to try to know things earlier to avoid laying off teachers that we really would like to keep.
Mayor Lukes asks if we can have budget projections for the next two years; Mr. Allen points out that this is included.
