Miscommunication about overtime hours for Antelope County road employees was clarified during Monday's supervisors meeting.
In the last month, there was a change from 45-hour work weeks to four 10-hour days Monday through Thursday, and about a dozen county employees attended Monday's meeting to address concerns.
About an hour of the meeting was spent on the agenda item. Among the concerns were comp time, vacation time and overtime and how that would be shown on their pay stubs.
County Road Boss Casey Dittrich told the employees that if they would have went to him first with their concern, they may have avoided much of the confusion.
Another item of concern for the workers was having been compared to inmates. Ray Schlecht, who represented most of the roads employees during the meeting, asked supervisor Greg Koinzan for an apology regarding the remark made last week, where he compared the county workers to inmates.
Koinzan said that he was quoting a movie, and it shouldn’t have been taken out of context. Because it was a movie quote, Koinzan said he did not need to apologize.
The supervisors meeting covered topics ranging from managing the Leafy Spurge in Antelope County, courthouse wide wifi and many issues with the road department.
