VACAVILLE - The city has cut 112 employees over the past five years - a workforce that now cannot meet service demands, leaves employees stressed and the city will likely need additional full-time positions, Vacaville City Manager Laura Kuhn says.
"The city has done a variety of things to reduce spending, including departmental cuts, salary and benefit concessions by bargaining groups, furloughs, early retirements and elimination of positions," Kuhn
wrote in a report the City Council takes up Tuesday.
The council in January asked for an analysis of staffing.
Vacaville "is forced to operate in a reactionary mode, with very little time to plan," Kuhn
"The city has yet to fully address unfunded liabilities for retiree health and pension costs, as well as considerable shortfalls for resolving issues with aging and damaged facilities, timely equipment replacement and dealing the aging infrastructure," Kuhn
