Commissioners Reject One Time Bonus

In a split vote, Clay County Commissioners voted against the Library Board’s recommendation to give the librarian a one-time $1,500 bonus when commissioners met last week.

At the end of the fiscal year, the Clay County Library had $3,759 in excess funds. The Library Board made a recommendation that Librarian Judith Cutright get a one-time $1,500 bonus and that Louise Burks get a $200 one-time bonus. The remainder of the funds would be used to purchase books and other library supplies.
