Mayor Frank Jackson

Cleveland’s more than 6,500 workers are safe from layoffs for now, despite budget losses from the coronavirus, Mayor Frank Jackson told employees Wednesday.  

The city’s 2020 budget was written with a possible recession in mind and Jackson’s administration has been managing costs as COVID-19 chips away at revenue, Jackson said in a 45-minute briefing on the city’s finances at Cleveland Public Auditorium.

About 36 minutes into the mayor’s discussion of the city’s budget position, he paused as he looked out on the audience.
