I responded to your question on the Fire Department article.
Michael Stover, administrative officer for the Sacramento Fire Department, said he didn't have information on how much in dollars the city paid for retirements contributions for sworn members of the fire department. He referred me to the city's payroll and benefits staff for that question.
Finance Director Leyne Milstein provided the following statistic: She said the city paid $25.3 million for all public safety retirement contributions (including police) for the 2009/2010 fiscal year.
Thanks, Nha! Keep in touch!
UPDATE: When talking about the proposed cuts at a May press conference, Jaymes Butler of Sacramento Area Fire Fighters Local 522 said firefighters would be “laid off.” However, when pressed by reporters if there would be “out-the-door” layoffs, Butler said that 49 positions slated for cuts were not filled and no current workers would actually be laid off.
Thank you, George! Thank you for educating me about neighborhood issues in Sacramento.
Thank you for the kind words, Rhonda. Thank you for reading and commenting on my stories--I always read your comments, reflected on them and appreciated your feedback. Best wishes to you, Kathleen
Thanks for pointing that out. I will look for that piece of information and respond as soon as I can.
Thank you, Isaac.
I checked in with Norm Leong today. I asked him for the "out-the-door" layoffs – the numbers of actual people (not positions) who would leave the Police Department if the proposal goes forward. He said the number was 147. That figure includes the 80 layoffs of sworn cops.

Here is some information about salaries of workers in the new union.
Most of the positions in the group of 103 workers are administrative analysts and program analysts, according to city spokeswoman Amy Williams.
The city provides salary range information for city jobs on its website:
An administrative analyst earns a minimum monthly salary of $4,599.00. The maximum monthly salary for this job is $6,898.00. So, per year, the minimum salary would be $55,188. The maximum annual salary would be $82, 776.
The program analyst salary range is exactly the same as the administrative analyst's range, according to the city's website.
It was really unclear what the council plans to do to scale back the $12 million in cuts. The only thing council members decided Tuesday was that they would not approve the current proposal of $12 million in cuts to the police department.
I just talked to Sacramento police spokesman Norm Leong about the total numbers of layoffs proposed in the police department. The total number of layoffs in the department, including sworn cops and civilian staffers, would be 149. Here's the breakdown: Sworn cops: 80; Community Service Officers: 38; CSI: 14; Supervising Dispatchers: 6; Records Supervisor: 1; Administrative and Clerical: 10.
Thanks, Sonia! That's so nice of you to say that. I enjoyed working with you! Keep in touch.
Thanks, Lindol! I'm still looking for jobs.
You are such a kind-hearted person! I am touched by your comment. I enjoy reading your stories and I'll keep reading them after I move to San Francisco.
Thank you, Monica!
My fiance lives in San Francisco and I'm relocating to that city to be with him. I have truly enjoyed covering local politics for The Sacramento Press and I will be sad to leave the wonderful community in this city. My personal e-mail address is email@example.com
Thank you, cogmeyer! Best wishes to you.
