There are several new
employees being hired, have been hired, or applications are being
taken and looked at. Here’s what we have found:
4 new employees have
been or are going to be hired for Public Works. Comm.
has been urging Public
Works to get a road crew in place to work on the roads and the
roadsides. Larry Thurman might want to look at the huge water hole
on Pitts Chapel Road that stretches more than ˝ way across the
road. He and his “one man” that worked in the City on MLK Dr.
should have been in the County working on areas like this.
A new, part-time
Animal Control officer has been hired. We haven’t found if
this is to fill in until Kim (the officer who is out on Workers
Comp) comes back or if this is permanent. We can not find where
this position was advertised. We hear that Mike Steele is also on
standby for Animal Control. Hopefully, these calls will be answered
in a timely manner now. There have been MANY complaints about the
animal control officer never responding to calls.
have been received for the Code Enforcement Officer
that was advertised. Sources tell us that Ed Westbrook hand
delivered the application of his future son-in-law directly to the
County Manager. Both a Code Enforcement Officer and a Planning and
Zoning Director need to be hired.
