County changing snow day policyDecember 17, 2013
From local sources
Dubois County employees who work in the courthouse no longer will be paid on snow days.
In the past, those who work at the courthouse were paid when the building was closed because of snow.
But county dispatchers, who work in the St. Charles Street annex, have to come to work regardless of the weather.
On Monday, Jason Terwiske, a longtime county dispatcher, told the Dubois County Commissioners that the policy favors those who work in the courthouse.
The commissioners will adjust the policy so that courthouse employees will not be paid if the building is closed for an entire day because of snow.
But if it is open for an hour or two, then closes because of nasty weather, employees will receive a full day’s pay. County Attorney Art Nordhoff will rewrite the policy, then report back to the commissioners.
