The Wayne County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution authorizing stipends for full and part-time employees at a special meeting last week.
On Tuesday, April 26, the board passed a resolution to approve a Memorandum of Agreement with bargaining units to pay bi-weekly stipends to every full and part-time employee minus Duly Elected Officials, according to Wayne Times.
Initially, it was assumed the resolution had failed with two weighted ‘no’ votes and three abstentions, but County Attorney Dan Conner clarified the resolution only required a simple majority. The vote was originally scheduled for April 21 but had to be delayed because five Supervisors were unable to attend, including Palmyra Town Supervisor Ken Miller, who has since resigned and been replaced as chair by Huron Town Supervisor Phil Eygnor.
