Because early-retirement incentive programs have helped keep the lid on the city payroll and hold the line on taxes, the North Tonawanda Common Council is considering dangling the third incentive this decade.

City accountant David R. Jakubaszek said the incentives, when coupled with attrition, are an "excellent way for the city to manage its human resources."

With incentives and retirement, the city's full-time payroll has dropped from 365 in January 1992 to 329 in January this year, resulting in a projected savings of more than $1.1 million from Jan. 1, 1996, through the end of this year, he said.
