Oregon may leave some staff positions vacant
Written by Kelly Kaczala

In a lingering recession, Oregon is not in a hurry to fill several positions in the police and streets departments left vacant by retirements.

Administrator Mike Beazley said he and Mayor Mike Seferian are looking at ways to maintain city services with fewer people as the city deals with reduced revenue this year.

“It’s come to my attention there’s been a number of retirements lately,” Beazley said to council at a meeting earlier this month. “As we look at our revenues and we discuss this year’s budget, we’ve been on a go slow mode on filling vacancies. We do want to make sure we continue to meet essential service needs looking at both police and streets. I’ve been talking with the mayor and obviously looking at issues associated with those vacancies to make sure we can maintain the service level that our citizens expect within the revenue that we’re actually getting. We wouldn’t contemplate filling all the vacancies, but we’re going to look at making sure we continue to fill our shifts appropriately.”

Two former public employees agree with Governor John Kasich that it’s time to rein in school spending by adopting some of the tools Senate Bill 5 will provide local school districts.

Mike White, former director of public utilities for the City of Toledo, and Jim Austermiller, a CPA who worked 26 years in the public sector including 13 years with the state auditor’s office, are two members of  Oregon Residents for Effective and Efficient Schools, a citizens committee formed shortly before last November’s election.
