Ford the cost-cutter adds to city’s payroll

As a candidate, Rob Ford promised he’d save more than $67-million this year by reducing the city’s work force by 3 per cent.

But as mayor, he’s proposed increasing the work force by nearly 1 per cent or 447 positions in his debut budget.

New documents released on Monday reveal increases of 405 positions for capital works and 48 positions for day-to-day operations, minus a decrease of six positions for the solid waste, water and parking authorities.
