New Hanover County puts off layoffs

New Hanover County employees will have to wait another week to find out if they'll keep their jobs. The county had planned to announce layoffs to make up a $3 million budget deficit by today. A county spokesperson says officials will need more time to figure out how much money still needs to be cut to make up the remaining deficit. The county has already cut travel expenses and offered early retirement to eligible employees. Layoffs could be needed to fulfill any remaining budget gaps.
