Warren county manager to be compensated for travel
Warren’s county manager will be compensated for travel now.
At the Warren County Board of Commissioners meeting Monday, commissioners negotiated the deal in closed session.
Afterwards, they approved a $7,500 yearly allowance for County Manger Linda Worth’s travels effective Aug. 1.
Angelena Kearney-Dunlap, clerk to the board, said Worth drives all over the state attending conventions and events.
Worth said she uses her own car and gas and has not been compensated — like other local county managers have — for the entire 13 years she has been in her position.
The board also approved:
• Consent agenda items, including the declaration of August as World Breastfeeding Month in Warren County to join the county health department’s awareness week and the declaration of Warren County as a Purple Heart county — the 98th county to take the oath, according to Kearney-Dunlap.
• The reappointment of Karl F. Hehl to his seat on the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission for another three years.
• The authorization of sale of two old county maintenance vehicles and a resolution declaring intent to pay debt on new ones.
