Clallam: County facing “significant” layoffs in 2003

SEQUIM — Declining revenues and increasing expenses despite no new programs or employees will force “significant” layoffs of county personnel in the 2003 budget, County Administrator Dan Engelbertson said Monday night.

“Our revenue picture looks like it won’t keep up even with no new programs,” Engelbertson said at the first of three county budget forms taken on the road — this one at Guy Cole Convention Center at Carrie Blake Park.

The county’s 2003 “baseline budget” just maintaining existing programs and services will increase 4 percent over 2002 without any cuts, Engelbertson said.
