Vacant city positions given the ax 

Mayor Gavin Newsom continued cost-cutting measures Wednesday when he announced the elimination of 301 city positions, but no city employee will receive a pink slip yet.

Most of the positions are vacant, and any filled positions in the 301 will be moved into other jobs. The cuts are expected to save The City $29 million in the next fiscal year and are the latest moves Newsom has announced in an effort to balance the budget as The City faces a projected $338 million deficit next year.

The City will announce layoffs of employees in the coming months, according to Newsom. But in the latest move, most of the eliminated positions — 200 of them — came from a reduction at Laguna Honda Hospital.
