Hanna M. Greer, Commissioners, 525-5848
This morning, Franklin County Commissioners rejected a Fact Finder’s report concerning the Fraternal Order of Police Capital City Lodge # 9 and the deputies of the Sheriff’s Office.
Citing the uncertainty of the state budget and the potential for significant cuts to local governments, Commissioners stated that while they appreciate the work that the Sheriff’s Deputies do every day to keep County residents safe, the Board could not justify approving the package presented by the Fact Finder calling it unsustainable and saying that they must be responsible to all taxpayers.
Commissioners further noted this is a collective bargaining matter and they encouraged the parties to continue discussions and reach a mutual agreement. In the meantime it would be inappropriate to comment further.
The Commissioners resolution and the fact finders report are available on-line at
