The Oswego County Health Department won’t be hiring a consultant for the purpose of recruiting and retaining non-supervisory staff in the Certified Home Health Agency and Long Term Home Health Care Program.
During Thursday’s meeting of the Oswego County Legislature, a proposal from Core Skills, True Impact in the amount of $9,200 to assist with the retention of employees in the county health department’s nursing services was not approved.
Legislator James Oldenburg said he could not support the expenditure of the funds. “I don’t feel we need to hire a consultant for something that could be done in-house,” he said.
Voting against the proposal were legislators Margaret Kastler, David Holtz, John Martino, Dan LeClair, Robert Hayes, Linda Lockwood, Art Ospelt, Jacob Mulcahey, Amy Tresidder, Mike Kunzwiler, Dan Chalifoux, Terry Wilbur, Jim Karasek, Dan Farfaglia, Louella LeCLair, Fred Beardsley and Oldenburg.
Legislators Kevin Gardner and Morris Sorbello were absent.
