Jail Administrator moved from hourly to salary at Commission Meeting

-A A +A
By Cindy Simpson

A Morgan County Jail employee’s substantial overtime from filling in on patrol duties will no longer be coming out of the jail budget.

Morgan County Commission voted unanimously at its June meeting to return jail administrator David Woodard back to a salary rather than hourly position.

Commissioner Randy Roberts, who made the recommendation, said it was an effort to address overtime at the jail.
Roberts said the last time he’d looked at the figures Woodard had made around $63,000 so far this year, which he said was about $29,000 in overtime.
