Two special meetings run tomorrow of committees on the Cortland County Legislature.
— First, a Joint Health & Human Services Committee Meeting at 8:00 am for discussions regarding salaries of Mental Health and Social Services employees.
— A Special Government Operations Committee Meeting at 8:30 am will discuss and entertain salaries of County employees in other departments.
It’s part of an effort to retain current workers and recruit new ones. Both are proving to be difficult.
Several departments have lost manpower at an alarming rate to other better-paying opportunities elsewhere in the public and private sector.
The tentative 2022 budget allocates money to address some of these issues.
