Title
Chief Administrative Office recommending adoption of Resolution directing Mandatory Temporary Layoff for various departments for Fiscal Year 2009-2010.
Resolution 176-2009
Body
Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost:
The recommended action will provide one-time savings within each department budget resulting in General Fund savings.

4 day Mandatory Temporary Layoff:
Agriculture (exempting certain classifications)
