Adams County approves new labor deal with jailors

Adams County approves new labor deal with jailors

2 months, 1 week ago by Scott Hardy

Contract retroactive to 2017, will expire in September

The Adams County Board has approved a new contract with its' jail staff, something they'll have to do again in six months.  

The Board Tuesday night approved a three-year deal with corrections staff that is retroactive to September 2017. Under the terms of the deal, jailers will get about a 2% yearly raise. The contract was delayed due to disagreements over step raises wanted by senior jailers, and the County's wish to grant higher starting pay to new jail staff. Eventually, an arbitrator had to be called in to help get the deal approved. The Board also approved $188,000 in change orders to the new Adams County Jail. The County will only have to pay for $28,000 of those changes. The City of Quincy will pay around $60,000 for changes it wants in the new Quincy Police Department headquarters. Construction on the new Jail is still set to be completed this fall.  

The County Board also learned that of the 8 cremains placed in a mausoleum vault in Golden last month by Coroner John Myers, only three remain unclaimed.
