For the second time this week, the city announced the layoff of a long-tenured employee.
Carol Roth, the finance department’s administrative secretary, received her lay-off notice Thursday.
Roth’s position will be eliminated after the city made a priority of reducing unnecessary positions and consolidating costs in 2011.
“I’m trying to restructure the department,” said finance director Hank Solowiej. “It was by far the toughest decision I have had to make as finance director."
Roth, a 20-year employee, will continue to earn her hourly salary of $20.23 while on administrative leave until Feb. 17, her final day of work.
Her yearly salary totaled about $42,000.
Earlier this week, the city also laid-off acting deputy engineer Kathy McKillips and abolished her position. She earned $82,200 a year.
McKillips once ran the department, but had been demoted to serve beneath John Hancock in 2009 and Todd Roth in 2010.
The city won't have anymore layoffs in the near future, interim city manager Don Icsman said.
