A bonus has been approved in Labette County for employees for how long they've worked and will continue to work for the county. Commissioner Cole Proehl says they hope the longevity pay will help keep their most experienced employees.
Commissioner Proehl explains how the longevity pay will work. Proehl says employees who are employed longer than forty years will still receive the bonus it will just cap at the $2000. The pay is not retroactive and will only begin this year. The commissioners approved the resolution on a 2-0 vote with Commissioner Lonie Addis choosing to abstain.
