CLIFTON, N.J. — The City Council will slash 22 jobs — 10 officers' positions in both the police and fire departments and one lieutenant in each — in order to comply with a reduced tax-increase limit recently imposed by the state.
The jobs, which are vacant because of recent retirements, will be deleted from the city payroll and can't be refilled, said city officials.
