EMS employees' objections cause change in hours
Placeholder Image
The billing hours of Warren County EMS are changing again and consideration could be made to reducing the number of employees since the county has entered into an agreement with a private company to handle part of the department’s responsibilities. Back on Jan. 4, the county Safety Committee adjusted the billing hours to keep the office open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with staggered one-hour lunches for the two full-time employees. Prior to that, the office was open from 6 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and complaints were heard that the office closing early gave no time for people to make it after work to pay a bill.The schedule change means the full-time employees are working eight-hours a day, five days a week.
