Hale decides to retire in 2012, be rehired in 2013 (Audio included)

Logan County Solid Waste Management District Coordinator Alan Hale has decided to retire and then be rehired in 2013. Hale's last official day under his current contract is December 31st. He will begin working again in mid-January.

Hale is uncertain how long he will work after this year. The waste management group has several projects started that Hale would like to oversee to their completion. He could work six to eight months of 2013. He agreed to a percentage of his 2012 salary as compensation for 2013.

Hale discussed two of the projects. The cleanup to the summer's windstorm may take as long as a year and half to complete. Hiring and training staff to do the work and using nearly a million dollars in federal grant money in such a big project are duties that Hale was not comfortable unloading on someone else.

In addition, local residents have inquired to the Logan County Commissioners about the availability of purchasing bricks and scrap from the courthouse as souvenirs. Hale feels it's an interesting way to dispose of the materials that are no longer usable.

Hale's main reason for retirement is that he has worked a long time and there are things in his own private life that he would like to accomplish.

Alan Hale talks future plans.

He's been the solid waste district coordinator for nearly eight years.
