County turn­ing to em­ployee cross train­ing

The Covington News - - N0, - Gabriel Khouli gkhouli@cov­news.com

Nearly three weeks af­ter the county of­fi­cially chose to main­tain its 10.91 mill­age rate, county depart­ment heads con­tinue to ex­plore cuts. They have a Mon­day dead­line to present fi­nal bud­gets to the chair­man’s of­fice.

Chair­man Kathy Mor­gan said Fri­day she ex­pects the per­son­nel cuts will be min­i­mal, with the hard­est hit de­part­ments, such as pub­lic works, los­ing a few em­ploy­ees at most. If pos­si­ble, va­cated po­si­tions, are be­ing left un­filled, and em­ploy­ees are be­ing cross trained at ev­ery op­por­tu­nity.

If de­part­ments need to share an em­ployee in or­der to keep costs down, they’re do­ing that.
