Lee County--  Lee County's administrator will now have much needed help in his office but other county positions remain vacant.

Monday night, county commissioners approved the hiring of a senior administrative assistant for County Administrator Alan Ours. Ours often works long hours and weekends to keep the county running.

He says the assistant will be a great help and the county is working to fill seven positions that have been vacant for some time.

"The building inspection department has vacant building inspector positions. The planning and engineering department has vacant positions and we are working as hard as we can to fill those positions with qualified people," said Ours.

The new position will pay up to $30,000 that will come from the county's contingency fund. Commissioner Jo Ealum voted against it. She says the county may not be able to afford the recurring costs.
