LAS VEGAS, N.M. (AP) - Luna Community College has notified nine employees that their contracts will not be renewed amid budget cuts.

Documents obtained by The Las Vegas Optic shows (http://goo.gl/RnVi3N) that the employees were notified in May of the college’s decision. Among the employees who received the letters are a current and former San Miguel County commissioners.

The Optic reported last month that several employees - including director of trades Gary Martinez - had received letters from the college notifying them that they would not have jobs come July 1.

After the Optic filed on open records request, Luna Human Resources Director Leticia Archuleta released copies of nine letters that were handed out to employees.

College officials have said that Luna faces a budget shortfall of more than $400,000.
