We have 35 DMV branches in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Governor’s 9C cuts cost the DMV $773,000 of a F/Y 2009 payroll budget of $32,210,000.
The $32,210,000 is an increase of $2,305,000 over F/Y 2008.
That is, the Governor is reducing the increase, not really decreasing payroll costs by $773,000 and is telling us we’ll have longer waits at the DMV as a result. What are we talking, 14 or 15 headcount reduction statewide and the Governor predicts longer waits at DMV.
