Commissioners Deal with Excessive Flex Time
LIBERTY, June 8, 2015 - Department of Labor investigators first came to Liberty County to audit the Comp and Flex Time of the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department around January of this year.
County Commissioners first dealt with excessive Comp Time with a payoff some months ago.
At Tuesday’s Commissioner Court meeting, Commissioners will be discussing paying off over $60,000 dollars of Flex Time that has been accumulated just over the last two years.
The statute of limitations limits actions taken by the Department of Labor to two years.
All of this money was accumulated under the last two years of Sheriff Bobby Rader’s term as Sheriff.
Where in the budget will the money come to make this payoff?
What will happen to accumulated Flex Time older than two years?
This action by Commissioners Court is being taken after a lot of foot dragging since January to resolve the problem and bring the county into compliance with Federal labor laws.
We can’t afford Bobby Rader and we shouldn’t have to be ordered around by Labor Regulators due to the Sheriff’s mismanagement.
Make no mistake. This action is being taken by Commissioners because they were forced to.
