The Grover Beach City Council voted Monday night to cut six jobs to reduce an $800,000 budget deficit.
City Manager Bob Perrault says two full time and four temporary positions were cut, all in clerical and administrative roles. The cuts will save the city $350,000 a year, every year.
"We just know that we had take this step to do what is right and what is fair and so we will have a balance budget and we'll still be able to invest in the future for Grover Beach," said John Shoals, Mayor of Grover Beach.
The council also made cuts to the city street budget. Sales and property tax revenues are down 12 percent from three years ago.
