Employee pay may be studied in Lee County

August 14, 2007

Lee County--  Lee County leaders will decide in two weeks if they'll pay the Carl Vinson Institute nearly $40,000 to study employee pay and come up with a new compensation system.

County Administrator Alan Ours says the current system is fragmented and Lee County salaries don't compare well with other counties or companies.

"Wal-Mart pays their loss control officers more than we pay our patrol officers with the Sheriff's Department. So we have some areas that are of concern to us and it's important when we have vacancies that we're able to recruit qualified individuals," said Ours.  

The study would start in December and be finished in April. It would be paid for from the county's contingency fund.
