Council passes final action on ordinances

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

The Clay County Council took final action on some unfinished business during Monday's meeting.

Numerous salary ordinances were on the agenda, which had the first reading approved during the council's July meeting.

The council approved final action on all the salary ordinances including:

* A $30,000 annual salary for the Chief Dispatcher/E-911 Coordinator position. The ordinance was made retroactive to May 15, when Melissa Gambill was initially appointed to the position,

* Salaries of $22,000 for the VOCA victims advocate position, and $17,770.36 for the STOP investigator position, both of which are paid for through grant funding, and

* Within the Prosecutor's Incentive Fund, set a straight-time hourly rate of $14.15 per hour, and an overtime rate of $21.23, for an administrative assistant position, for a federally mandated retention project. The council also set a maximum of 100 hours for this position as well.

Meanwhile, the council approved final action on a seven-year personal property tax abatement for PDF, Inc.

The company will be purchasing a hydraulic punch press, and is agreeing to the terms of the Abatement Calculation Agreement, which allows the county to recoup any or all of the abated taxes should the company not meet employment estimates or shut down before the term of the abatement ends. This agreement is included with all tax abatements approved by the county council.

Due to the Labor Day holiday and county budget hearings, the next county council meeting will be at 5 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 7, in the Commissioners' Courtroom at the Clay County Courthouse.
