Sullivan County Manager Proposes Pay Cuts For Certain Employees
In New York, Sullivan County employees could see their salaries cut temporarily because of fiscal impacts of COVID-19.
Sullivan County Manager Josh Potosek has recommended the Legislature approve a temporary reduction in the salaries of 87 county employees. He says, effective July 1 and through December 31, all management/confidential employees would receive a 4 percent reduction in their annual salaries, reducing their take-home pay for the year by about 2 percent. Potosek said so in an email to affected employees Thursday. Potosek says his salary would be cut by 8 percent, or 4 percent on a calendar-year basis. He says the pay cuts would save around $200,000. The legislature is expected to vote on the measure during a special meeting Friday at 3:30.
