County wants to hear from Prairie View
Prairie View mental health center’s budget request for $94,403 in county money drew questions from commissioner Randy Dallke at Monday’s commission meeting.
Dallke said he’d heard it was sometimes difficult for authorities to get needed emergency services from Prairie View.
When commissioners approved other budget requests, they skipped over Prairie View in favor of getting more information from the agency.
“We want them to come in and tell us what they are doing for the county,” commissioner David Crofoot said. “They usually come in and tell us what they’ve done, how many cases they’ve done.”
In other business, engineer Brice Goebel asked commissioners whether the county had plans to increase employees’ pay.
Goebel said a member of his department resigned Monday morning from an employee to take a job for a different county that will pay $3 more an hour.
Goebel said that he had hired a new employee who was tired of traveling to his last job, and that the new employee’s stepbrother also might apply.
