A proposal to lay off about half the staff at Kane County's Public Health Department has been tabled for now.

The Kane County Board voted to hold off on the cuts until it can fully consider other funding options.

The department's director had proposed cutting 76 of the department's 158 employees because of reductions in funding from the State of Illinois.

Those cuts would have gone into effect in mid-August.
