Winder, Ga. (AP) - Winder has laid off 30 people from city government positions due to the economic downturn and falling tax revenue.

Mayor Chip Thompson said the cutbacks include positions - some already vacant - and about 23 full-time jobs. He says cuts were
made in all city departments.

Thompson said the layoffs are designed to streamline city
government. Winder faces a projected $1.4 million budget shortfall this
year.
