More cuts announced

Because TriMet gets most of its revenues–55 percent–from the employer payroll tax, and with unemployment climbing, TriMet also announced today that it will cut an additional 3 percent throughout the agency for the FY10 budget. Those cuts could ultimately include staff layoffs, additional budget cuts, furloughs, but no additional service cuts will be considered until mid-May when there is additional information on actual payroll tax receipts for the first quarter. If additional service cuts are necessary, they would be proposed over the summer.
