RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Eleven firefighters have accepted an early retirement package from the City of Reno.
The early retirement-resignation program eliminates more than $1 million the City Council must calculate out of the Fiscal Year 2014-2015 budget.
Last week, a judge ordered a preliminary injuction which saved 32 Reno firefighter jobs and added $3.7 million to the coming budget. These eleven early retirements lowers that number to an estimated $2.6 million.
The Reno City Council will meet on July 15 to discuss cuts to make up the $2.6 million. Special events are among the areas where the City Council could make cuts.
The retirement-resignation program went into effect on June 30, and includes a payout of $20,000 each for the eleven firefighters.
