Why no furlough for city employees?

-A A +A

To the editor:
I am a state employee. We have taken furloughs to help with the budget crisis and the recession.
I am just wondering why can’t our city officials do the same? I know this can’t be possible with law enforcement but why not with other non-emergency staff?
With no raises given, gas prices on the rise and cost of living increases, the residents of Lawrenceburg can’t afford any more tax increases.
We need to put this pressure on our city officials.
