If approved the position will have a salary of $60,000 and will remove the purchasing duties from the current maintenance and operations position held by Luigi Pasquale. The county executive says his salary will remain the same due to the amount of projects he has on his plate.
Dahlkemper says the positions used to be separate in the past and is a lot of work under one person. She says she hopes to save the county money and be more efficient.
The position has to be cleared by council first. They meet and are slated to vote tonight beginning at 7 p.m. at Northwestern High School.
