MOUNT VERNON — Changes in the Knox County administration have apparently not resulted in increased costs, although the process is still working itself out.

The hiring of County Administrator Jason Booth added salary, but that is partly offset by the departure of 911 Director Rick Dzik and further balanced by the coming retirement of Rochelle Shackle, the longtime executive assistant to the commissioners.

When Dzik left, he was replaced by Booth as a combined 911 director and county administrator. As such, Booth said, 30 percent of his pay comes from 911 while 70 percent comes from the General Fund.
