Deputy salaries discussed in McCracken County Fiscal Court workshop
UPDATE: McCracken County Sheriff Jon Hayden has provided the presentation and statement he gave the county’s fiscal court Wednesday evening.
More money is needed to hire McCracken County sheriff’s deputies. That’s what Sheriff Jon Hayden told the McCracken County Fiscal Court during a workshop Wednesday night.
Hayden said the department is losing manpower because of deputies’ current salaries. He also provided the fiscal court with a study and report on the current condition of the department.
Fiscal court member Bill Bartleman tells us no exact dollar amount was requested. No decision on the increase was made Thursday. The fiscal court still has at least two more workshops before deciding on a budget.
We have requested a copy of that report, and we’ll bring you more details on the findings Thursday.
