Placeholder Image
The Dawson County Board of Commissioners last week approved a request from Planning and Development Director Jason Streetman for a budget amendment so that the department can hire two additional staff members to keep up with an increasing demand for services. Streetman asked for an additional $52,000 for the salary and benefits for an administrative assistant, as well as an additional $55,800 for the salary and benefits for a building inspector. The position of administrative assistant was previously frozen and is now being activated.
