Proposed government positions for 2007 up by 12

NORWICH – The number of new government positions that could be created next year - up to 10 are recommended thus far - could increase by two based on action taken at Wednesday’s Chenango County Safety & Rules Committee meeting.



Sheriff Thomas J. Loughren requested and received permission to tentatively budget a new full-time communications dispatcher plus a full-time maintenance worker at the new Public Safety Facility on Upper Ravine Road in the Town of Norwich. Loughren said both positions are required to meet the current workload.

A new dispatcher position at $35,000 with benefits would be paid for using 911 surcharges, the Sheriff said. The undetermined salary and benefits for a cleaner would come from revenue generated by farming in prisoners from out-of-county jails.
