Animal Control budget approved, raises on hold
A push to provide salary increases to the two part-time employees at Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center has prompted a review of all lower paid county employees. Pictured is Brandi Bouldin, one of the two employees.
Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center’s proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year is creating confusion, but could result in raises for the county’s lower paid employees. “We are a little bit confused, because I think we have three or four budgets for Animal Control,” said Commissioner Terry Bell, during a county Budget and Finance Committee meeting.The differing budgets stem from Commissioner Blaine Wilcher submitting two proposed budgets to the county that he generated and submitted in opposition to the one generated by facility director Kim Pettrey. When the budgets were considered by the county Health and Welfare Committee earlier this month, Wilcher made a successful motion that his budget be approved and sent to the Budget and Finance Committee for consideration.
