The Ellis County Commission approved reorganization within the Treasurer’s Department at Monday’s meeting.
Earlier this month, the county’s deputy treasurer stepped down and current Treasurer Josh Wasinger said, after talking with Treasurer-elect Lisa Schlegel, they decided to eliminate the deputy treasurer position.
The changes will result in the division of the duties of the deputy treasurer among current staff, and one person will be designated as deputy to assist the treasurer and manage the department in the treasurer’s absence.
The reorganization also changes three positions on the pay scale. According to Wasinger, the accounting manager, the administrative coordinator and tax collector will all see at least one upgrade on the pay scale.
Wasinger estimated the moves will save the county $5,750 per year.
