At its meeting on Tuesday, April 28th, the Cayuga County Legislature voted to furlough 11% of its workforce in light of serious anticipated revenue losses and cost increases associated with the county’s Coronavirus COVID-19 response. The furloughs will go into effect on Sunday, May 3 until on or about July 31, 2020. The county currently operates at 50% reduced staffing in buildings and remains committed to its service delivery during this public health crisis.

“As elected officials, we have a dual responsibility to our workforce and taxpayers,” said Aileen McNabb-Coleman, Chair of the Cayuga County Legislature, “It would not be prudent to wait until this crisis is over to address the county’s financial situation. This was certainly not a decision we made lightly and we were mindful that the impacted employees will not suffer financial or benefit losses during this difficult time.”
