The Mahoning County Commissioners unanimously authorized today the abolition of 26 jobs in the income maintenance section of the county’s Department of Job and Family Services.

The 26 furloughs resulting from the job abolishments will take effect Aug. 27 and Sept. 3.

The layoffs are occurring due to a $1 million deficit, said Judee Genetin, JFS director.

The department has lost $6 million in combined federal and state funding since July 2007, she said.

Those to be laid off are 21 members of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 2001, four supervisors belonging to the United Auto Workers Union, and one non-union fiscal specialist.

Where possible, JFS chose positions for abolishment that don’t directly affect client services, Genetin said.

JFS employs about 295 people in its income maintenance and child support enforcement divisions combined.
