Montague County creating new human resource dept.

Montague County Commissioners voted Monday to create a human resources department to help coordinate its 100-plus employees.
The court met in a called session at 2:30 p.m. Monday with a new HR department the sole item on the agenda. The need for an HR department has been talked about during the past several years, but no specific proposal was ever developed. County Judge Rick Lewis said he has been researching it for a couple of years and he was going to wait until the spring, but decided to see if they could get it in before the end of the year.
When discussing what duties the new department would handle it was pointed out the person would process payroll, accounts payable and benefits. The treasurer would continue doing the banking, checks and distribute those payments. Read the full story in your mid-week Bowie News.
