County approves hiring for new public safety, emergency staff

PENN YAN--The Yates County Legislature authorized the sheriff to fill three vacant positions at their regular monthly meeting Monday, Sept. 11.
Sheriff Ron Spike was authorized to fill two deputy sheriff positions. The amount budgeted for 2018 is $47,920 for each starting deputy.
Legislator Mark Morris said he could not vote yes for the resolution because he said the Yates public safety budget is already over-budgeted and over-staffed compared to other counties the size of Yates. The measure passed but Morris was joined by Legislators Terry Button, James Smith and Elden Morrison voting against the hiring.
The next resolution authorized the sheriff to fill the vacant position of emergency services dispatcher. The amount budgeted for 2018 is $42,348 for a starting dispatcher. This resolution also passed with only Morris dissenting.
The legislature also authorized the director of patient services for public health to create and fill the position of emergency preparedness coordinator which will replace the current EMSC and public health program coordinator. Yates Treasurer and Budget Officer Nonie Flynn said this consolidation will save some taxpayer dollars.
The position of program coordinator is being eliminated (through retirement) and the position of EMS coordinator is receiving a bump in pay. By the one position not being filled in 2017, it was a savings of $24,893.51. For 2018, the savings will be $21,490.
In other business, after an executive session, the legislators agreed to provide support for the position of Yates County Real Property Tax Service Director with neighboring Schuyler County. Yates has conducted a statewide search for a candidate to fill this position and the county thinks it is best for Yates to work with their Schuyler counterpart for technical support for the Yates County new hire.
The resolution stated the agreement is not to exceed 30 hours per month and not to exceed a one year time period.
