Iroquois Co. (ECWd) –
We can only wonder what the excuse will be for the hiring of an Emergency Telephone System Board (ETSB), 911 Coordinator as a permanent position when the ordinance specifically stated they only had the power to hire, on a temporary basis, any staff necessary for the implementation or upgrade of the system.
(5) Hiring, on a temporary basis, any staff necessary for the implementation or upgrade of the system.
This is yet another example of a public body failing to read and apply the rules established by law and ordinance. Not only did they not have the power to contract a full-time person they were restricted to only provide the employment on a temporary basis.
How many years must pass before it’s no longer temporary?
