Topf Wells, 266-9069
Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk issued the following statement after the Dane County Deputy Sheriff’s Association and the Deputy Supervisors Association ratified a two-year contract Tuesday evening. The two-year contract includes a 3% cut in pay for 2010 and eight additional days off:
“Today’s ratification means all county employees -- our sheriff’s deputies, 911 dispatchers, snow plow operators, nurses, social workers, department heads and elected officials including myself -- have agreed to be part of the solution to address the worst economic recession our county has seen in decades," Falk said.
"Three out of every four dollars spent by county government go to public safety and protecting our most vulnerable citizens -- our kids, families, seniors, and the disabled. Together county government is working together to help weather this economic storm and preserve public safety and human services when our citizens need them most," Falk said.
