LAGRANGE – Two positions have gone unfilled in recent months in Lagrange County government.
They are code enforcement officer and county highway engineer.
The lack of a code enforcement officer prompted county commissioners to delay a status conference on the Neely Nuisance case in Elmira Monday. They tabled further action for three months.
The position falls under the sheriff’s budget and Sheriff Jeff Campos says he is having trouble finding a candidate for the job. Campos says they would normally look for a retired police officer, but he claimed the $17.00 per hour pay rate for the part time position is making it difficult to fill. He Suggested $20 or $22 per hour when asked by Commission President Larry Miller.
The other opening is the county highway engineer’s position...vacated suddenly earlier this year by Sarah Farlow.
The commissioners agreed to hire a recruitment agency to try and fill the position.
The commissioners also recommended county employee wages to should increase 3 percent in 2020. Their recommendation goes to County Council.
