Onslow County proposes re-organizing county jobs

Posted: Updated:
JACKSONVILLE, N.C. -

In Onslow County, 17 county employees could lose their jobs if a budget proposal goes through.

Onslow county manager Jeff Hudson says it's all about saving money.

Most of the jobs on the chopping block are at the Sheriff's Office and the Department of Social Services, he says.

But he says all 17 people who could lose their jobs are being offered other jobs within their departments, in the hopes that no one will be out of work.

In fact, the county is proposing to add a number of new jobs, including 911 operators and animal control officers.

"We have vacant positions we would be moving any individual into, so they would not lose a job in county government, although they may not do the same job they're doing right now," said Hudson.

The county is also proposing to eliminate more than a dozen vacant positions, including detention officers. Hudson says all this re-organization would save about $900,000.
