Supervisors consider rewarding employees

Posted on Thursday, February 14, 2013 at 10:13 am

Despite earthquakes, demolished school buildings, relocated campuses, and an all-around tough economy, Louisa County employees have managed, maintained and exceeded with exceptional dedication and positive attitudes.

That’s the view of Dick Havasy, vice chairman of the Louisa County Board of Supervisors, who wants to reward that attitude and perseverance.

Havasy (Green Springs) and Supervisor Willie Gentry (Cuckoo) are bringing a preliminary discussion about raises or bonuses for county employees to their next meeting of the county supervisors.

Support for those who support the county is overdue, Havasy said, adding that it is “time for us to acknowledge their dedication.”

Havasy pointed in particular to the resolve and dedication of teachers and staff at the schools, noting that state test scores since the earthquake have excelled neighboring counties, despite Louisa’s being the epicenter for the August 2011 earthquake the shook the east coast.
