Ventura officials said Friday they intend to issue layoff notices to as many as 20 city employees next week and may have to lay off as many as 50 additional workers later this year. City officials also are putting together a buyout proposal that would encourage some employees to retire early. It would be the first time since 1979, when Proposition 13 took effect, that the city has had to consider laying off workers, Finance Director Terry Adelman said.

Fifteen Ventura city employees were told Wednesday they would be laid off in three months, and city officials announced that another 20 positions--some already vacant--would be eliminated. City Manager John Baker said more layoffs might occur before July 1 but could not give any estimate of how many additional workers from the city's payroll of about 655 employees would lose their jobs to budget cuts.
