Mesa planning for layoffs

Mesa announced that they are offering a voluntary severance package to city staff in preparation for the job cuts that will be coming soon. They are offering 2 weeks paid plus a week for every year of service up to 12. Its a tough time to be laying people off right before Christmas, and I would assume that the economy is making new jobs scarce.

At least Mesa is trying to give people who have other opportunities a chance to move on, thus reducing the number of jobs were people are going to have to be laid off. It looks like the cuts are going to be for real this time. I would bet that this is only the beginning.
