Richmond (CA) Eliminates Director's Position

The city of Richmond CA, facing very serious financial problems, elected to "eliminate" the director's position, which has been vacant for over a year. A cursory review of the city's budget-cut plan suggests the library is the only department to eliminate its leadership as a cost-cutting measure. The budget does not indicate if the city plans to restore the position later.

The city elected to retain half of its funding for Channel 28, the cable access channel used to broadcast City Council meetings.
