 Fulton County Jailer Says Pay Increases Needed to Retain Employees

Fulton County Jailer Steven Williams says maintaining staff members is hard under the current pay system.

Williams recently addressed the county Fiscal Court concerning a lack of employee numbers on staff.

During the budget presentation to the Magistrates and Judge-Executive, Williams said he had 50 employees from a budgeted staff of 67.(AUDIO)

 

The County Jailer said to keep people working at the facility, an increase in pay must take place.(AUDIO)

 

Williams budget proposal included a $2.00 per hour raise for floor employees, and a cost of living raise for non-floor employees.

The proposal also included a recognition award of $1,000 for any employees who do not miss a day of work.

Judge-Executive Jim Martin said he would use the numbers presented by Williams to prepare for the upcoming fiscal year budget.
