MCLEANSBORO – The Hamilton County Board and the county’s sheriff’s deputies have come to an agreement on a new contract after the board approved the three-year deal at Tuesday night’s meeting.
Included in the contract is a roughly three percent raise for deputies, according to Board Vice-Chairman P.E. Cross.
The board tabled an issue regarding a possible solar farm in rural Hamilton County to determine technical issues of the paperwork. The issue will likely be discussed again in February. Cross said county clerk Mary Anne Hopfinger will likely put the plans up on the county’s website so the public can give their feedback on the solar farm.
The board meets again Tuesday, Feb. 18 at 6 p.m. at the Hamilton County Courthouse.
