WAMPSVILLE » The Madi­son County Board of Su­per­vi­sors at its meet­ing Tues­day ap­proved of the cre­ation of three new po­si­tions.

At the re­quest of the newly-elected sher­iff, Todd Hood, the sher­iff’s of­fice will now have a full-time di­rec­tor of ad­min­is­tra­tive ser­vices. The po­si­tion will be re­spon­si­ble for the su­per­vi­sion and co­or­di­na­tion of all fis­cal af­fairs for the of­fice.

County Ad­min­is­tra­tor Mark Sci­mone said sev­eral other de­part­ments, like health and so­cial ser­vices, have the same po­si­tion. For the sher­iff’s of­fice specif­i­cally, the po­si­tion will re­place some

of the work that was be­ing done by the as­sis­tant to the sher­iff and will be split be­tween fis­cal op­er­a­tions and grant work. The start­ing salary for the po­si­tion will range from $56,000 to $75,000, Sci­mone said.

Af­ter rec­om­men­da­tions from the Bona­dio Group as part of an ef­fi­ciency study of the trea­surer’s of­fice, the board agreed to cre­ate two new po­si­tions within the county ad­min­is­tra­tor’s of­fice. Ac­count­ing, pay­roll and fi­nan­cial re­port­ing func­tions will be trans­ferred from the trea- surer’s of­fice to the county ad­min­is­tra­tor’s of­fice and di­rec­tor of fi­nance and deputy di­rec­tor of fi­nance po­si­tions will be cre­ated.

The trea­surer’s of­fice will con­tinue to be re­spon­si­ble for the county bud­get and tax col­lec­tion and delin­quen­cies mat­ters. Six em­ploy­ees in pay­roll and ac­count­ing cur­rently work­ing in the trea­surer’s of­fice will move un­der the purview of the county ad­min­is­tra­tor’s of­fice.

A statewide search will be con­ducted for the di­rec­tor of fi­nance po­si­tion and will be filled with some­one with gov­ern­men­tal ac­count­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, Sci­mone said. That po­si­tion will come with a start­ing salary be­tween $70,000 and $95,000. The deputy di­rec­tor is ex­pected to be filled by one of the cur­rent deputy trea­sur­ers; the po­si­tion will earn al­most $60,000 – the same as the deputy trea­surer’s cur­rent salary.

The board also ap­proved of an agree­ment with the Oneida In­dian Na­tion that will ex­change use of the county’s com­mu­ni­ca­tions sys­tem with the use of Na­tion-owned land. The Na­tion will al­low the city of Oneida a right of way on prop­erty it owns in or­der to con­struct sewer in­fra­struc­ture. In turn, the county will al­low the Na­tion to uti­lize its in­ter­op­er­a­ble com­mu­ni­ca­tions sys­tem.

Oneida Su­per­vi­sor Joe Magliocca com­mended Chair­man John Becker for his work in se­cur­ing the agree­ment, say­ing the ar­range­ment will al­low the Elm Street busi­ness park project to move for­ward.

The board also in­tro­duced a lo­cal law that will pre­clude em­ploy­ees of the county board of elec­tions from run­ning for public of­fice. A public hear­ing on the lo­cal law is sched­uled for the March 13th meet­ing. If en­acted, the law would re­quire any em­ploy­ees of the board of elec­tions to re­sign if the run for of­fice, as soon as their pe­ti­tion is filed with the board of elec­tions.
