By Anna Rose MacArthur, KYUK - Bethel
The Bethel-based regional nonprofit Association of Village Council Presidents, or AVCP, has laid off 30 employees, citing budget concerns.
In a press release, the corporation says general staff will take a five percent salary reduction, and senior management will face a ten percent salary cut.
It's unclear why the layoffs are occurring but AVCP cited the economy.
