Madera City Council tables budget vote as layoffs loom
MADERA, Calif. (KFSN) -- The Madera City Council was expected to vote on a budget Thursday night which called for 22 layoffs and the elimination of seven vacant positions in the city. Instead, council members decided to table the issue and continue discussing it at their July 25th meeting.
The cuts could impact several departments, including the Parks and Community Services department. No police or firefighter positions are on the line, but some support staff positions at the police department might be cut.
