WARRENTON — County workers have received a 1 percent raise as a result of actions the Warren County Board of Commissioners took Monday evening.

Commissioners approved a job classification schedule for employees working 7.5 hours per day and those working 8 hours per day. The schedule reflects the cost-of-living adjustment approved in the 2014-2015 budget. The raise took effect July 1.

Warren County Cooperative Extension Director Crystal Smith introduced India Jones, a 4-H participant who won a gold medal in public speaking at the district level and competed at the State 4-H Congress held in Raleigh in June. Jones will also make a report on her study of Granville County government at the annual conference of the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners in August.
