Cherokee County Commissioners make quick work of their Monday agenda.
Items approved included the creation of a part-time correctional officer position at the Cherokee County Detention Center.
The position is up to 30-hours a week and will pay 12-dollars and 39-cents an hour.
It is seen as a cost saving measure that will cut down on the amount of overtime pay.
The commission also voted to advertise for a Highway Maintenance Technician position.
This is not a new position, but to replace an employee who retired in March.
The commission also approved two requests for special funds.
The first was for Cedar Bluff High School for up to 2-thousand dollars for travel expenses for the track team.
The money will come from Commissioner Marcie Foster’s Tobacco Tax Account.
The second was for the Ellisville Fire Department for water meter installation in the amount of 1-thousand 100 dollars.
Those funds will come from the Tobacco Tax Account of Commissioner Randy Jones.
In other action, commissioners adopted a Mutual Aid Agreement between and among counties and municipalities of the North Alabama Mutual Assistance Association.
This is the same agreement that has been in effect for a number of years to provide and receive mutual aid as a result of an act of war, natural or man-made disaster.
The commission also authorized the chairman to sign a letter of intent to use ATRIP Funds on County Road 41 and approved the designation of 21 items of computer equipment from the Cherokee County Narcotics Unit as surplus.
The next Cherokee County Commission meeting will be Monday, May the 6th at 10am.
