Dispatch workers want more

Angela Murphy fears higher starting wages paid to Anderson County dispatchers might tempt some of Allen County’s.

She told commissioners Tuesday an advertisement in a Garnett newspaper offered dispatchers $12.09 to start, while new dispatchers in Allen County were paid $10.25.

Glancing over a list of county employees and what they’re paid, Commission Chairman Dick Works noted all but one of Allen County’s was paid at least $11.90 an hour, and observed that benefits here might be better.
