It was announced Monday from the mayor’s office than Dan Horrigan will be eliminating three positions in his cabinet. Those positions are in communications, health and education, and community relations.
Horrigan, the mayor of Akron, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to discuss why he made this decision. With the revenue falling short, Horrigan says he wanted accountability to start with his office. The layoffs, according to the mayor, are “purely for economics,” as this will free up close to $430,000.
Speaking of economics, Horrigan also touched on the dollar allocation from Issue 4. He explains Issue 4 is an 11-month collection, and that will not begin until February.
