Job Cuts Proposed In E. Moline

Updated:

More job cuts could be coming to a Quad City. The mayor of East Moline says the city is considering cutting up to ten jobs to help balance the budget.

Mayor John Thodos says if workers who are eligible for retirement decide to leave, the number of cuts could be reduced. The city is already in talks with union representatives.

He says the cuts are necessary because of decreased revenue, including money they're not getting from the state. A final decision is expected in three weeks.

Recently, the Rock Island County Board also suggested job cuts by ordering a 7.7-percent across-the-board reduction in spending at county departments because of delays in state funding. At the time, officials thought there would be three cuts within the Rock Island County Sheriff's Office, including a corrections officer.

According to Board Chairman Jim Bohnsack, they only laid off two workers: a dispatcher and a secretary.
