BOC MEETING 8/1/16 AT 6:00PM—AGENDA ITEMS INCLUDE FIRE PUMPER & RAISES

July 31, 2016

Meeting Notice

With all the things going on in the county, you might think the BOC would have some issues on the agenda for roads, the county’s ISO rating, or other issues of concern to the citizens.  Instead there are two items on the agenda for the 8/1/16 meeting:

     

    Rescue Pumper Bid Results

     Budget Amendment – Payroll Contingency to Departmental Budget

The bids are in for the “rescue pumper” (fire truck), and this time it appears no bid rigging attempts have been made by the fire chief.  There were 5 different companies that bid, with prices ranging from $223,327 to $288,450 with varying times of delivery.

Isn’t it amazing that, even though county personnel had not been evaluated and had not had a review in June, as soon as the BOC approved 3% raises—contingent upon reviews—that every employee has already had an evaluation and gets a 3% raise. 

Last month the Sheriff’s department all got their raises moved out of contingency, and this month every other department gets their raises.  Every single employee is doing such a great job, that they all get a 3% raise.  Comm. Henry pushed for merit raises, giving those employees that did a good job a raise.  Comm. Pennamon pushed for 3% across the board raises.

    Why certainly Commissioner Pennamon wants a 3% raise with no evaluations. It is the only way he can insure his buddies at public works get a raise. They could not get one on merit.

  2. JUST SAYING says:

    I think a rescue pumper would relate to ISO ratings…

    5 1/2 Engines (Pumpers) in a 7 station County…seems like there is a need. I say 5 1/2 because there is another that needs to be replaced in the near future…Do you buy a car and expect to get 30 years out of it.
