Red ink forces Niles council to ponder layoffs



Published: Thu, July 3, 2014 @ 8:21 p.m.

NILES — A combination of revenue shortages stemming from utility delinquencies, costly replacement of a failed software system and other financial issues have left the city’s finances in disarray, and council members openly talking about the possibility of eventual layoffs.

“We might be looking at cutbacks at the end of the year,” said Steve Papalas, council finance chairman, “but we don’t really know how things stand.”

The comments came during an occasionally contentious roundtable meeting this afternoon in which Papalas grilled Auditor Charles Nader about the reasons for the city’s rapidly rising red ink.

“Our general fund stands at $1.9 million but if the year ended right now, the balance would be at zero,” said Nader who reported major deficits in excess of $2.6 million in the water and sewer departments.

Government personnel...man, aren't we lucky to have them?

“Our general fund stands at $1.9 million but if the year ended right now, the balance would be at zero,”

I like that quote. I also like this quote;

“Our general fund stands at $1.9 million but if the year ended right now, the balance would be at zero,”

Another good quote from the article;

“Our general fund stands at $1.9 million but if the year ended right now, the balance would be at zero,”
