Sparks Lays Off 5 Employees

SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - The city of Sparks has laid off five employees in the city's Community Development Department.

Two others were transferred to other departments.

Community Development Director Neil Krutz says the slow economy and downturn in the construction industry necessitated the layoffs.

The department's budget mostly comes from fees collected for building permits, inspections, planning and other development services and is separate from the general fund.

With the layoffs, the department now has 53 employees. Twenty-four vacant positions were frozen.
