More Franklin County budget savings identified


Other adjustments legislators reviewed concerned reorganization of a few departments and savings realized through lower salaries, pension-participation changes for certain employees and a future retirement, which alone will shave $42,000 off the 2013 budget.

Leitz said savings could be projected in unemployment-insurance premiums, which were budgeted at $320,000 this year. Unemployment claims were up in 2012 due to 14 staff layoffs, but no layoffs are planned for 2013, so that budget can be reduced to $288,550 next year.
