County Reaches Compromise Over Tax Office Increases

The county commission came to a compromise with Tax Commissioner Jeff Chapman Tuesday regarding Chapman’s employee related budget request. Chapman had requested job classification upgrades for 18 of his 20 employees and to hire four additional employees - two full time and two part time. The commission agreed to the job classification upgrades but agreed to hire only one new full time employee. The commission said they would revisit Chapman’s request for the other three employees in the future.
