West Liberty Board of Public Affairs President Dean King addressed council Monday.
King informed council that the board was not in compliance with an ordinance that states a salaried-employee cannot collect overtime. The board did not know about the ordinance and was trying to figure out a way to pay salaried-employees overtime. Council decided not to make changes to the existing ordinance meaning that the board will have to work in compliance to resolve any further issues.
In addition, King made recommendations for employee pay scales to take effect on January 1st, 2013. Council supports the recommendations.
West Liberty and Liberty Township are continuing to work on an agreement outlining how town hall usage will be governed. The only remaining issue is Liberty Township would like to use arbitration rather than mediation to settle any dispute that may arise after the agreement is finalized. The changes will be made and the agreement could be signed at the December 10th meeting.
Mayor Greg Hostetler discusses the meeting.
Alan Hale from the Logan County Solid Waste District gave council an update. He reported that recycling tonnages has increased, that more items will begin to be accepted for recycling in January, and outlined the district’s plan through the next few years.
West Liberty Village Council will meet again on December 10th at 7:30 pm.
