Changes May Be Coming Regarding Cumberland County Schools Sick Leave and Personal Days Policies
Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday October 8, 2014

Changes may be coming regarding Cumberland County Schools Sick Leave and Personal Days Polices for non-certified employees. At Wednesday night’s meeting, the Schools Policy Committee was informed that some non-certified employees are using up all their 5 sick days and 5 personal days in a very short time period and then quitting. Given there’s no probationary period, these days are available the moment they are hired. Not only does this create a staffing issue, but it’s costing the school system money. The committee has tabled the matter pending further study.

Crossville Police Officers are the lowest paid out of 9 comparable cities in Tennessee
Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday October 8, 2014

Crossville Police Officers are the lowest paid out of 9 comparable cities in Tennessee. Crossville City Manager David Rutherford reported to Council in work session on Tuesday, stating that out of 9 cities he surveyed, Crossville pays entry level police positions the least. The City Manager told Council members that the City does a poor job of compensating employees, with 11 employees with many years of service are making less than $25,000 per year. He added that the Police and Fire employees are also underpaid. According to Rutherford, it will take around $200,000 to get employees even close to where they need to be and will take at least a 2 year commitment from Council to get wages up to par. Rutherford will be presenting a compensation and classification plan for the Council to review during their regular meeting next Tuesday.
