The Pennington County Engineer’s office presented a few personnel items at last week’s meeting of county commissioners. The first was establishing a new salary rate for the Highway Department accountant followed by internal transfers of employees from part-time to full-time status. The accountant position is outside of the recent union negotiations which included most of the county engineer staff. The 2021 pay rate for the accountant will be $29.17 per hour. Two other part-time county employees were moved from part-time status to full-time. One of these positions will include a schedule that begins at three in the morning in order to respond quickly to snow events. One possible responsibility would be cleaning out roundabouts prior to the bulk of the day’s traffic.
