ISLIP - Town of Islip jobs and important programs are on the line tonight as it faces millions in red ink.
The $26 million budget shortfall has caused the town's officials to look at all departments to find opportunities to restructure. Town Councilwoman Trish Bergin says she and other officials found a way to save more than $1.6 million from the Department of Human Services.
"Not everybody will lose their jobs," said Bergin. "There will consolidations- some people will be laid off but not everybody."
Bergin went on to say that they will most likely have to cut the teen pregnancy program and that the drug and alcohol program will no longer be the town's responsibility.
