County Commissioners approve raises for JFS employees

| January 11, 2022

NEW PHILADELPHIA (WJER) (January 11, 2022) – Tuscarawas County Commissioners have approved 3 percent raises for employees of Job and Family Services.

County Auditor Larry Lindberg says the county JFS has 98 employees. Their pay now ranges from $14.67 per hour for a part-time office worker to just over $95,000 a year for Director David Haverfield.

Board President Chris Abbuhl says commissioners approved Haverfield’s raise Monday. He describes them as standard raises similar to the ones the employees received last year.

Lindberg says the raises will cost the county about $170,000 this year, which Abbuhl says they can cover thanks to conservative budgeting over the years.
