Human Resources

The Human Resources Department was created by a board resolution at the beginning of 2002.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Human Resource Department is to be responsible for the overall development, implementation, and administration of human resources and employee relation functions to attract and retain an efficient service and to stand unified as a team, by communicating and supporting each other. We will maintain the philosophy to remain nonjudgmental, confident, and professional in all areas within the department.

Functions of the Department

The Human Resource Department functions as a resource for employees to assist with benefit questions as well as calculating biweekly payroll. The department is also the primary lead with labor negotiations and assists in the resolution of contract disputes with the director as the liaison between the union officials and the Board of Commissioners. The Human Resource Department maintains the primary role in administering the Workers’ Compensation Program and resolving unemployment compensation disputes.
