LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Some employees at the University of Kentucky have begun receiving notice that they are being laid off.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/MdZeZk ) reports university spokesman Jay Blanton wouldn't speculate on a final number of employees who will lose their jobs. Blanton said Tuesday that administrators are putting that information together.

University President Eli Capilouto announced last month that UK would reduce spending to make up a $45 million budget deficit over the next two years.

UK Work Life Office Director Robynn Pease said another round of layoffs will probably occur between October and January.

Blanton said some departments have begun giving employees notice that their jobs will end in 90 days.
