HENRY COUNTY COMMISSIONERS HIRE DEPUTY DOG WARDEN
Some corrective measures in normal office operations for Henry County employees will result in a credit of over $4,300 in the insurance premium for commissioners. The Henry County board was informed by their risk-sharing authority at CORSA, that changing the way space-heaters are utilized in offices will benefit the bottom-line. That change is to plug those space heaters into a wall outlet, rather than a power strip. Another recommendation is to attach shelving units to walls, rather than making them free-standing units.
The Henry County Commissioners have hired Guy Miller as the new deputy dog warden, effective October 15th, in a part-time position at 10-dollars per hour.
