HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – At the monthly Hill County Officials meeting on Wednesday morning, the ongoing pandemic and numerous job openings were large points of discussion.
A report provided by Health Officer Kim Berg stated that the COVID-19 case rate in Hill County is currently nine times higher than at this point last year, and their Department remains extremely busy working on contact tracing and are doing their best to keep up.
The Department is looking to hire a handful of contact tracers and case investigators to help out.
And there are plenty of other job openings with Hill County.
Sheriff Jamie Ross says his Department has received an increase in calls, adding that they are short about five employees in the Detention Center and are eager to receive job applications.
Other job openings include Deputy Clerk and Recorder, County Attorney and Sanitarian.
There are also quite a few openings on county boards, with multiple open positions on the Fair Board and Rural Fire 1 Board.
Also discussed at the meeting:
- Auditor Kathy Olson presented potential ideas for how to go about issuing County Credit Cards to Departments. This would make it easier for employees to make work related purchases without having to wait on being reimbursed. No action was taken on this issue
