The city of Trenton has approval to layoff 64 firefighters who are currently being funded by a federal grant that runs out at the end of October, according to a plan approved by the state.
The layoffs are set to occur Nov. 1, 2017, and affected firefighters would need to be officially notified no later than Saturday, Sept. 16 to comply with state 45-day notification rule, the plan says.
City spokesman Michael Walker said late Friday that the city will start official notifications on Monday, due to the late hour the city was notified Friday evening that the plan had been approved.
NJ Advance Media obtained the approval plan from the state Civil Service Commission via the state’s Open Public Records Act.
