(LAGRANGE) - The LaGrange County Council went through the 2020 county budget again on Monday, and to start with, they made a few changes.
The Council did approve the County Commissioners' recommendation for a 3% pay increase for county employees. They denied a higher request, of nearly 9%, from Emergency Management Director Don Wismer. Wismer’s request for a deputy emergency manager also lacked support from Council.
Council did support a request from Sheriff Jeff Campos to create a new Sergeant position in the sheriff’s department. That person would be available at the jail during the day to handle walk-in issues, which would keep road deputies on the road.
Campos and Chief Deputy Tracy Harker told the Council they’ve hired Bill Stewart to become the new nuisance enforcement officer.
