Century balks at hiring two workers

Town decides to re-advertise two positions


March 18, 2021

The Century Town Council Monday night voted 3 to 2 to start the hiring process over for two recently hired employees after it was determined that the town's charter states the council must approve hiring of new employees.

A third position for a wastewater treatment trainee to help Water Superintendent Heath Burkett was not addressed at the meeting, Mayor Boutwell said later.

Mayor Ben Boutwell had hired a person for the street department and one for the office recently after the positions were advertised and the applicants were interviewed, although the council was not involved.
