The Oct. 15 meetings started at 3 p.m. with a work session with a grant writer, a discussion of the county’s road priority list at 4 p.m., and then at 5 p.m. the commissioners listened to the importance of preparing for the completion of the North Gray Bypass.
Commissioner Daylon Martin talked to the board with the results of a meeting of Jones County’s department heads. He said the group agreed on a call-out policy for county employees.
Martin said every one who is on call would receive a payment of one hour when they are on call. Commissioner Larry Childs said he should have brought up the issue sooner, but he does not think some employees should be considered on call. He singled out the code enforcement officer and department heads.
Recreation Director Matt Goins explained that the one-hour per day payment does not include department heads or code enforcement.
