Riverside County managers take pay cuts

June 23, 2009 12:05:46 PM PDT
Riverside County managers have accepted 10 percent pay cuts and will forego scheduled raises in the face of major budget problems. This follows a similar move by the Board of Supervisors last week.Board members are scheduled to vote at the end of the month on a budget for the coming year that forecasts $130 million less in revenue than the current year.

Earlier this month, Supervisors Marion Ashley and Ron Wilson challenged elected county officials to take a 10 percent pay cut to help lessen the budget problems. Since then, all have agreed to do so.

"If we all share in the sacrifice, we can help protect jobs and services," said Riverside County Executive Officer Bill Luna.
