Commission holds special ‘bonus’meeting

By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

The Levy County Commission's plan to give a one-time payment to county workers — who last received a pay raise in 2006 — has run into some snags that will require the commission hold a special meeting on Halloween, Wednesday, Oct. 31, at 11 a.m.

Commissioner Ryan Bell of Chiefland (R-District 4), who proposed a one-time incentive or bonus for full-time county workers at an Oct. 16 meeting, said the commissioners need to discuss some limitations the staff found on such payments. 

“And we can't talk without a public meeting,” Bell said in a phone interview on Monday. 

Bell said there are statutory requirements and qualifications that must be met to pay the bonus to all full-time employees. 

Bell proposed the one-time payment as a way to thank employees for their work in cutting this year's 2012-2013 budget to $61,235.783.

Bell proposed that the funds for the raises come from the budget already approved. Cunty Coordinator Fred Moody said if the budgets needed to be adjusted to cover the payments they could be amended later in the fiscal year.
