The bus service in Muskingum County has announced a layoff. A spokesman for Z-bus or Southeast Area Transit says five drivers and one dispatcher have been laid off. The layoff is the result of tough economic times and the loss last year of $80,000 dollars from the city of Zanesville. Officials say routes have been restructured so service should not be affected. Z-bus still has 14 full-time employees.
