Winnebago County sheriff orders 74 layoffs after budget cuts

Winnebago County's sheriff is making good on his promise to lay off the county's entire courthouse security team because of a budget cut.

Sheriff Gary Caruana yesterday told 64 reserve deputies that their last day will be next Friday. The sheriff also laid off ten jail guards.

Caruana said he has no choice after Winnebago County leaders cut his budget by about four million-dollars. The sheriff has also talked about getting rid of the county's 911 operators as well.
