The elimination of its office manager and removing a proposed 3-percent raise to village employees from the table were two steps taken recently by the White Pigeon Village Council.
The cuts were part of a money-saving measure the village is taking to help balance a $61,000 shortfall in its projected debts versus revenues.
Carol Gilbert, who has served as office manager for seven years, will be let go in April as a result of the action. Upgrades to the village office building, building maintenance and mower expenses also were mentioned as possible expenses that could be eliminated from the list of expenditures.
Further discussion on cuts and ways in which Gilbert’s role will be filled will likely take place during a special meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday next week.
