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.
