Sources say five civilian
employees at the Troy Police Department have been informed they will get laid
off in January, 2015.
The five employees are members of the Civil Service Employees Association. Their titles and job descriptions were not immediately available. Civilian employees generally perform such tasks as automobile repair, data entry and secretarial work.
They were informed by Chief John Tedesco, Deputy Chief Richard McAvoy and other PD brass Wednesday afternoon.
Mayor Lou Rosamilia sent a request asking that all city departments cut their budgets by 3 percent in an effort to save $1.9 million, the amount the city is deferring from next year to 2016 in pension costs.
More information as it becomes available.
