Local officials believe they can maintain services, yet cut some payroll through a new plan that will merge the county's Youth Bureau into the Department of Social Services.

The proposal got the endorsement of the legislative committee on Monday and has already been given the green light by the state's office of children and family services.

Under the plan, a pair of clerical positions would be eliminated by next January, although one is scheduled to retire and the other will transfer to an open position.

That proposal will be put to a public hearing in July before the legislature votes on it.
