Some employees with the Hardin county road department will likely see a pay increase in the near future. A renegotiated mowing contract and elimination of vacant positions left the county with a surplus of $164,000. Now officials say they’ll reinvest a majority of that money into their road department workers.
Deputy Judge/Executive Daniel London says the raises will help the department be competitive with hiring, namely recruiting those with CDL licenses. The raise is expected to be confirmed at next week’s fiscal court meeting.
