Belt-tightening measures set

In response to Daly City’s fiscal crisis, city employees will be furloughed without pay and city offices — including libraries — will be closed from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Day. Daly City’s adopted general fund operating budget for the current fiscal year is approximately $72 million, according to city documents.

Nearly half of the city’s revenue is derived from property tax and sales tax, meaning the economic downturn has had a significant impact on Daly City’s revenue base.

To help fill an expected deficit, city employee groups agreed to take nine unpaid furlough days before Dec. 31.

Additionally, employees went without salary and benefit increases and the city eliminated more than 40 full-time positions.
