The idea of giving employees a 10 percent raise for job certifications seemed a good one, but implementing it for county employees has proven difficult for the Jones County Board of Commissioners.

The bottom line is where the money is to come from to fund those raises.

A discussion of the subject at a June 17 work session included a visit from Chief Deputy Barbara Burnette with the Jones County Sheriff’s Department. While some commissioners were considering a one-time certification for employees, others appeared to be thinking only of certification of department heads.

Burnette’s presentation to the board was about the constant certifications that are required of law enforcement officers.

Commissioner Daylon Martin began the 4 p.m. work session stating that, in January, the board approved several employees to get a 10 percent raise for their certifications.
