Between revenue shortages, new expenses and plummeting property valuations, the City of Laredo faces a nearly $16 million budget shortfall while drafting the 2011 fiscal year budget.

City staff is looking at ways to deal with the shortfall.
  • 10-20% cuts in operating budgets for non-contract departments
  • Layoffs (unlikely)
  • No replacements will be hired if somebody leaves his/her position
  • Employees taking days off without pay (unlikely)
