Todd Fiscal Court approved final reading of an ordinance this morning giving raises to all county employees.
It was already agreed upon in principle for full-time employees to receive a 75 cent raise beginning July 1st and for part-time employees to receive a 50-cent raise.
Court also approved allowing long-time employees who have accrued at least 200 sick hours to have a one-time opportunity to sell those off. Judge-Executive Darryl Greenfield said he felt it was the only fair thing to do to encourage employees to stick around.
Magistrate Alfred Blake didn’t oppose the measure, but said he didn’t like the idea of capping sick time accrual at 240 hours, which is also part of the administrative code.
In other action, court took no action on a proposal to build a carport for the Rescue Squad’s incident command center vehicle, deciding instead to look at consolidating three projects from the jail, sheriff’s office and rescue squad which are all looking at building some type of structure.
