JOHNSTOWN — The Fulton County Board of Supervisors on Monday appointed James Bornt as new county deputy superintendent of facilities.
The move highlighted several personnel matters handled by supervisors at the County Office Building.
The appointment of Bornt — as recommended by county Superintendent of Highways and Facilities Mark Yost — is effective immediately. He replaces James Maye, who recently retired.
A resolution indicated Bornt will be paid at an annual rate as specified in the non-union salary schedule, with the salary not made public.
A local law passed in 2007 established the position of deputy superintendent of facilities in Fulton County. A position exists in the 2017 county budget paying an annual salary of $51,094.
In other personnel issues, the board withdrew a resolution that would have appointed Fulton County District Attorney Chad Brown to the Fulton County Traffic Safety Board.
“Mr. Brown is already a member,” said county Administrative Officer Jon Stead.
In other personnel matters:
∫ The board waived the county residency requirement for hiring a registered nurse for the Fulton County Jail. A full-time vacancy exists in the correctional facility. The resolution indicated Sheriff Richard Giardino has had difficulty hiring for this full-time position from within the county in the past. He requested that applicants who aren’t residents of Fulton County be considered.
Supervisors voted to waive Fulton County’s residency rule for the hire of a full-time RN in the jail in this instance only.
∫ Mark VanAllen was appointed as deputy EMS coordinator of the Emergency Medical Services Council. Deputy EMS Coordinator Sean Wilson had moved from Fulton County leaving a vacancy.
∫ The board passed a resolution creating a temporary per diem Democratic clerk position in the county Board of Elections. Board commissioners were authorized to employ one temporary per diem clerk at $13.40 per hour with no benefits. The hire is on an as-needed basis, not to exceed 20 hours per week, effective immediately through June 30.
Stead said the Board of Elections originally brought a part-time, roughly three-hour per day position request to the Finance Committee. But he said that didn’t fill a full-time clerk slot, so the position was structured as temporary per diem.
