UGA trying to avoid more layoffs

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - A University of Georgia official says more layoffs probably can be avoided during the current fiscal year, but the school will have to be cautious in managing money.

Tim Burgess, the university's senior vice president for finance and administration, says administrators will let vacated positions go unfilled, put off repair projects and hold back money that typically would be used to help departments meet operating expenses.

President Michael Adams says the university trimmed its payroll by nearly 500 workers in the past year, including nearly 200 teaching faculty positions.

Burgess says more layoffs may be harder to avoid when the new fiscal year begins on July 1.
