This letter is in response to the letter written by Cliff Schmid (Herald, Jan. 19), which has some factually incorrect
The decision to lay off an officer was not an arbitrary one, but rather was done by following the Town of Ignacio
personnel policy that has been approved by the Town Board of Trustees.
As for his cut-in-pay suggestion, I suggest Schmid evaluate which services he does not need, so I do not have to
continue to pile up additional duties on the town staff while making them take pay cuts as some of them, including
myself, already have done.
Balty Quintana, Ignacio
