The Fayette County Commission discussed position vacancies and other items at its Sept. 14 meeting, as they continue to work toward adopting the fiscal year 2021 budget later this month. All commissioners were present for the meeting. Commissioner Barry Corkren said that he asked that position vacancies be placed on the agenda for discussion. He said that this is not so much a “hiring freeze,” but instead, he is asking that any future vacancies be reviewed by the county administrative staff to see if duties can be combined to find a more efficient and cost-effective means of performing the duties.
