The Hancock County Commissioners will get some more information about a jobs program before they decide on a contract. During their Thursday meeting, the commissioners tabled a resolution that would have allowed the Department of Job and Family services to hire someone to work on employment outreach. At a future meeting, Hancock County JFS Director Diana Hoover will answer questions about the deal.
According to the proposed one-year contract, the position would be paid $49,500. The contract could be renewed twice.
The job duties outlined in the proposal include collaborating with Ohio Means Jobs and initiating targeted business outreach.
