tz- May 20Za Your Hometown Newspaper News Outlook, 4~ Fiscal Court cont. from pg. 1 Court help to pay for half of a full-time SRO posi- tion at $14 an hour, which would total approximately $34,000 a year. During a special called meeting earlier this month, Bath County Board of Edu- cation members approved the creation of a school re- source officer position. County Judge Executive Bobby Rogers told court members last Thursday that he and Tackett had met again and negotiated some details of the agree- ment Rogers said that Tackett agreed to a figure of $11 an hour for the position, the same amount paid to Sher- iff's deputies. The school district will pay the posi- tion's salary and will cover- age mileage. He said the Fiscal Court will handle payroll, Social Security, retirement, and health insurance for a full- time position. The Fiscal Court will also advertise for the posi- tion, with a preference for two part-time positions in- stead of a single full-time person, in order to save on retirement and insurance. The position will be for 185 days (August through May or the end of the school year). Applicants must already have law enforcement certification and will have additional training require- ments to fulfill as an SRO. County Attorney Price said that the fis- cal impact to the county wouldn't be known until it was determined how many people applied for the po- sition, and she agreed to work with school board at- torney Shelly Williams on ironing out details of the agreement Court members voted to approve a partnership agreement with the Bath County School District and to advertise for two part- time positions for school resource officer. Bath County Humane Society representative Nancy Gauze also spoke again with court members during the meeting. For the past few months, Gauze and other Humane Society members have asked the Fiscal Court for help in opening a county animal shelter. In March Gauze said that the owners of property near the Owingsville/Bath County Sports Complex had made an offer for them on three acres. On Thursday Judge Rog- ers said that he had heard a rumor of someone else talking about opening an animal shelter in the coun- ty, but he provided no fur- ther details. Gauze repeated her plea for the fiscal court members to work with the Humane Society, but she also had several questions about potential sources of revenue for an animal shel- ter, including help from the cities of Owingsville, Salt Lick, and Sharpsburg, and license fees for dogs and cats in the county. County Attorney Price said that court members could enact a license fee for pet owners in the county if they wished, that would be enforced by law enforce- ment and animal control officer David Jackson. In the previous month's meeting, County Attorney Kim Price said that even if the county was inclined to purchase the property, the county would also own the building on it, and there would be issues to work out regarding liability with volunteers and establish- ment of a chain of com- mand at the shelter. Wee have a contract with Rowan County, and that's where the animals should be going, for us to be in compliance," Price said. "It is a question of you com- pelling the animal control officer to take them there." Gauze also scolded the ounty for relying on the Humane Society and not Tri-County Animal Shelter for housing stray animals. "Shame on Bath County government for putting it all onto volunteers to beg for money to take care of your problem," she said. I'here is something wrong when the most needed things in this county are neglected." She also said that the Hu- mane Society had consult- ed an attorney. "No matter what you all say, you are not in compliance, because not one dog or cat from this county has ever been taken there [Tri-County Animal Shelter] ."
