Pulaski Council Increases Comp Time Hours for Employee


The Pulaski County Council Monday night approved a motion extending the maximum allowed comp time hours to 179 as a one-time only solution for the 911 dispatch supervisor. Carol Crist approached the council and explained that she had accumulated the hours after three of her dispatchers couldn’t make it to work for medical reasons, prompting her to work those extra shifts to keep the emergency services available.

The council also approved additional appropriations that were required due to a technical error; Auditor Sheila Garling said a document had the wrong fund number listed, causing a line item to run in the red until February.

The council approved a motion to advertise for $10,765 to pay wages for 911 dispatchers.
