Council approves additional appropriations

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Several additionals were approved by the Putnam County Council during its meeting Tuesday.

The highway department was given tentative approval during the council's March meeting to have money appropriated for repairs and replacements of county bridges. It was officially approved Tuesday.

In addition, council voted 4-1, with the one abstention from Opal Sutherland, to give the department $50,000 from the rainy day fund.

In December, Superior Court Judge Denny Bridges and Circuit Court Judge Matthew Headley went before the council to request a personnel change. The change would require money to be transferred from one court to another, but without needing more money.

That request was approved along with an amended salary ordinance for the new full-time circuit court position.

In other business:

* County assessor Wanda O'Neal was present at the request of council member Roger Deck. The assessor's office presented a timeline to the board on appraisals of all parcels. One-quarter of the county's parcels must be appraised before Dec. 1. To date, 1,929 have been done. O'Neal and Tyler have decided the assessor's office is on schedule with appraisals.

* The juvenile probation office hired a new assistant. It went before council to approve an amended salary ordinance, which was approved without hesitation.

* Logan Hospital submitted a claim for more than $300 in clothing.

"It is a rare bill," stated auditor Stephanie Campbell.

* Minutes from Aug. 19, 2008 to March 17 were all approved.

I see that the juvenile probation office hired a new assistant, was that job posted? do jobs at the courthouse get posted?
