GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - City employees have voted by an overwhelming majority to take a 3% pay cut in 2010.
Thursday afternoon, two representatives from every city department met to vote on one of two options. The options included either taking a 3% pay reduction across the board, or a 1.9% pay cut coupled with two unpaid holidays and two furlough days.
The pay reductions will go into effect in January of 2010.
The City says the cuts are necessary to deal with a $1.5 million deficit.
