Facing millions in revenue loss due to COVID-19, Lancaster city furloughs 12% of staff

Lancaster city is furloughing roughly 12% of its employees for an indefinite period of time in an effort to save taxpayer money during the COVID-19 shutdown.

Already facing a nearly $3 million deficit in its 2020 budget, the city is projecting it will lose an additional $4.7 million in tax and fee revenue this year due to economic slowdown.

Mayor Danene Sorace delivered the news to the 69 full and part-time employees in a Zoom meeting earlier this afternoon, explaining the necessity given the financial challenges facing the city.
