"YONKERS - Faced with a $16 million budget gap, Mayor Phil Amicone yesterday announced plans to lay off 76 full-time workers and scale back municipal services including cuts to special police units, the elimination of one fire company and the end of bulk trash pickups for residents.
Set to take effect Jan. 1, the cuts also call for the layoffs of 75 part-time workers, 28 demotions and the elimination of 44 vacant positions.
Among the full-time layoffs would be 11 police officers and six firefighters, as well as 46 members of the Department of Public Works. The mayor said workers will be told beginning next week whether they are affected."
