Commissioners debate hiring of maintenance person

As plans for the Moffat County Public Safety Center come closer to being finalized, the county is considering hiring a person to help maintain the facility.

The Moffat County Board of Commissioners started the process to find a maintenance person for the safety center. There have already been about 70 responses for the position. Maintenance Supervisor Calvin Stehle has narrowed the field to three candidates.

Two of the candidates have an associate degree in electronics and the other candidate is a certified cooling and heating specialist. The advertisement for the position in the Craig Daily Press stated the position would pay about $26,000 per year.

Commissioners still haven't decided whether they will hire another full-time person. The process was started early.

"If we decide to hire someone, we should think about having them come on board now so they know the equipment," said Janosec.

According to Stehle, he will need the help once the center opens.

"I think that I could use the help as the safety center project progresses," said Stehle.

Stehle and the commissioners believe it will be important for the person to have knowledge of electronics. The new facility will have advanced electronics.

Stehle will administer an electronics test to the final three applicants.
