RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com ) - Layoff notices will be going out to 80 Reno fire fighters. Reno's City Council made that decision today because of deconsolidation with the county. A city spokesperson says they will be department wide and based on standard layoffs procedures which consider things like seniority.
County commissioners say they would like to re-hire as many of those laid off employees as possible.
“I think we owe it to re-hire every last one of those people,” Commissioner Kitty Jung said.
The City Manager says the layoffs will be happening, but he wants to wait as long as possible to send out the pink slips.
