The Port of Oakland’s commissioners voted Tuesday to send layoff notices. The notices, giving a 60-day notice of impending layoffs, would go to between 60 and 70 people as part of an effort to trim $18.6 million in spending from the port’s fiscal 2009 budget, according to a staff report.

The port operates Oakland International Airport and one of the West Coast’s largest container shipping ports.
