Commissioners will vote on several personnel issues.
Planning and Development Director Jason Streetman has requested the Board allow him to hire an administrative assistant and an additional building inspector to help keep up with the increased work flow in that department.
Streetman said the administrative assistant is needed to answer phones, greet the public, accept and key in permits, schedule inspections, order supplies, process and review business and alcohol licenses and process excise taxes. The position would have a salary of $32,951 with benefits valued at approximately $19,049.
Commissioners are also expected to vote on an amendment to the planning and development budget of $55,000 that would allow the hiring of a building inspector. The proposed salary would be $36,558.00.
A third personnel issue is the proposal to increase the annual compensation for the county clerk position from $5,000 to $10,000. Historically the County Clerk position has been a full-time position, but since 2012, it has been combined with other full-time positions. The recent salary study recommended a minimum salary of $38,962 for a full-time County Clerk position. The current part-time pay is $5,000 annually.
Commissioners will also hear a couple of presentations Betty Ann Bagley will give a presentation regarding services provided by the Senior Center. Frank Riley’s presentation on the Georgia Resource Conservation and Development.
A second public hearing will be held on the annual adoption of the proposed 2017 land use map.
An application by the Extension Office for permission to hold a parade and assembly in the parking lot of the courthouse for the purpose of administering rabies shots to family pets will also require Board approval. The pets will not be loose on the grounds. The shots are administered while pets stay in the vehicle. If approved, the event will be held on Saturday, 4/22/17 from 10am to 1pm.
