Just up on Daily Worcesteria: the City Manager has been told that the state is rejecting the home-rule petition on early retirement and on pension reform. This puts the City of Worcester $6.2 million more in the hole for FY10. Added to the previous cuts? $8 million.
The Manager will have a report for the council on recommended actions Friday (when the new Council agenda goes up for next Tuesday's meeting.)
The School Department did not assume passage of these items, so no changes there.
