Changes in hours and pay periods for county employees in Montgomery County have left questions and concerns for some employees. The treasures office is now open to the public from 8:00am to 4:00pm instead of 9:00am to 4:00pm. County Treasurer Nancy Clubine says with the new hours employees have to come in earlier to get ready for the day.
The commissioners all agreed that if an employee was coming in at 7:40am they could leave at 4:40pm as opposed to staying until 5:00pm. The county has also recently changed from a monthly pay period to a biweekly pay period. County Attorney Lisa Montgomery says do to employees' personal budgets they would like to stay monthly.
The commission decided to table the discussion with the attorney's office until they could discuss the issue with the county counselor, but they didn't appear to be in favor of the change.
