Clark council approves transfer of funds for 911

Council approves raises for 15 community corrections employees





The county unanimously approved an amendment to the county’s salary ordinance for the hiring of a new full-time, certified county engineer. 

Brian Dixon will earn $60,000 per year. The county will retain County Engineer Hyun Lee, who works part-time and earns around $23,000 per year, County Commissioner Jack Coffman said. Because Dixon has the right certifications, the state will reimburse the county for $20,000 of Dixon’s salary, Coffman added. 

The county approved the requested salary, but did not completely fund the hire. The previous commissioners budgeted $30,000 for engineering, leaving the request unfunded by around $40,000 when Dixon’s medical coverage and retirement are taken into account. The council approved an appropriation for $23,480 while an appropriate fund is selected from which to pay Dixon. The council will revisit the issue at their March meeting. 

“It’s difficult, I’m not going to kid you,” Coffman told the council. 

The council also approved appropriations out of the cumulative capital fund totaling $85,000 for upgrades to the county’s computer system and the purchase of two vehicles.
