We have to find a better way! It was heard many times throughout this week’s Marinette County Board meeting.
Only this time it was expressed by Interim County Administrator, John Lefebvre, as he spoke about the Carlson – Dettman Wage Study. Currently, the County is about three weeks behind schedule with the study but March will more than make up for the delay, when the County Board decides on a step or merit pay structure for its employees. Lefebvre says, currently the county is based on a merit pay structure but it isn’t being utilized.
LeFebvre says, he wants the county board members to understand that he does not want to use the existing investments to pay salaries.
During this time, all department heads will be reviewing the hierarchy of their staff and Interim Administrator Lefebvre and Human Resources will be looking at the County as a whole. A Carlson – Dettman representative will also be on hand to assist and address any pay structure concerns.
