Board Exempts Positions from Hiring Freeze
Ten full-time positions and three part-time positions have been exempted from the hiring freeze adopted by the Moore County Board of Commissioners earlier this month.
At a Tuesday night meeting the board agreed to exempt one planner position, one public utilities operator position, four social workers, two income maintenance workers, a social services office assistant, one full-time driver and three part-time drivers.
Human Resources Director Denise Brook presented the exemptions as requested by department heads. The hiring freeze applies only to non-essential positions and is in effect only until adoption of the 2011-12 budget, which goes into effect July 1.
“These positions are currently funded and are needed,” said Commissioner Tim Lea, who made the motion to approve the exemptions.
