County abolishes position

JOHNSTOWN - The Fulton County Board of Supervisors on Monday abolished a custodial worker position in the county Highways and Facilities Department.

At its last meeting for 2013 at the County Office Building, the board acted mostly on routine contractual moves for the end of the year. But the board also approved several other non-contractual items, including the facilities personnel move.

The resolution approved Monday indicated county Superintendent of Highways and Facilities Mark Yost reviewed current staffing in his department, recommending a vacant $14.04-per-hour custodial worker position be abolished.

"This is all part of a contracting plan they're looking at for next year," county Administrative Officer Jon Stead told the board.

In another resolution affecting that department, the board approved various transfers and budget amendments, including one in Yost's department. Yost had requested a $30,000 transfer within accounts for snow removal, but supervisors cut that amount to $10,000.

The board authorized the payment of $39,020 as an annual county allocation to the Fulton County Soil and Water Conservation District for 2014. The resolution said the board has identified the district as an "important core program" of county government.

Supervisors also appropriated $197,123 to the Fulton County Community Services Board, and $70,358 to the county Veterans Service Agency, for 2014.

The board authorized purchase of a platform truck and step ladder for use in the county Information Services Department. The cost is not to exceed $600, the resolution indicated.

G&K Services of Marcy, Oneida County, was awarded a bid for uniform services for about 60 employees in the Department of Solid Waste and the Highways and Facilities Department. Uniform sets were listed as costing $3.74 per employee.
