Chiefland Finance and Projects Coordinator Laurie Copeland will ask Carolyn Cohens to volunteer a couple of Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Train Depot Museum as a result of discussion by the City Commission.
City leaders want Cohens to help the city determine if enough visitors to the museum will justify paying her to be at the museum. In the meantime, the city leaders appreciate Greater Chiefland Area Chamber of Commerce Secretary Janet Minor keeping a watchful eye on museum pieces when the Chamber is open.
The city lets the business organization use the depot as an office and it is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each weekday, except when Minor needs to be at some other Chamber function.
Chiefland City Manager Grady Hartzog Sr. said the budget for this fiscal year does not include $7,200 for Cohens' potential pay. City commissioners unanimously decided to table the matter of hiring Cohens as either a city worker or as an independent contractor until some point after they can determine if keeping the depot open on Saturdays will benefit the city.
