Phoenix eliminating 60 city jobs

Phoenix city officials say management restructuring will eliminate 60 city jobs.
Jobs will be cut through attrition, with certain positions not being filled once an employee leaves.
City officials expect reorganization to save $3.6 million in the general fund and $2.5 million in departments such as aviation, water services and the Phoenix Convention Center.
Eliminating the 60 jobs comes weeks after the City Council agreed to cut 546 vacant posts.
Since September, the city has been reviewing its organizational structure to reduce layers of management and become more efficient.
Human Resources Director Janet Smith says the review was an opportunity to put priorities on services the city should be providing since there have been so many work force changes in recent years.
