MOUNT VERNON — The Knox County Board of Health voted Wednesday to approve changes to the agency’s classification and compensation plan.
The board approved a compensation schedule that will allow Health Commissioner Julie Miller to grant raises up to 4 percent, based on longevity and merit (as reflected in the employee’s annual review).
The change in the classification plan, she added, were to more accurately reflect the job duties in many positions.
Most other matters approved by the board were routine. Miller said she had renewed the contract with Knox County EMA for services to include emergency response planning, grant writing and reporting and coordination of emergency response drills and exercises. The cost is for a maximum of $19,000 per year, the same as last year.
