Since the start of the recession, the number of workers employed by the city of Sedona shrunk by eight full-time employees and rose from four to 12 part-time employees.

TSedona Assistant City Manager Karen Daineshe city currently budgets $6.3 million in annual employee wages. That figure does not count additional benefits paid to employees each year, retirement contributions, workers’ compensation, Social Security and other associated costs.

Currently the city employs 113 full-time positions and 12 part-time employees. That number is down from 2007, when the city employed 121 full-time people and four part-time employees.

According to Sedona Assistant City Manager Karen Daines, the $6.3 million is paid from more than just the city’s general fund.

“It also includes salaries of employees charged to wastewater as well as general operations,” Daines said.

She said city funds are reported in four categories: the general fund, the wastewater fund, the capital fund and the special revenue fund.

The city currently operates with a budget of $36.4 million for the 2012-2013 fiscal year. That amount includes approximately $11 million in capital project funding alone.
