Augusta: Do we need deputies on the street ... or a new $100,000 bureaucratic job?

Augusta Board of Supervisors

Wednesday night's Augusta Board of Supervisors agenda included approval of a newly created "Economic Development Director" job. The position, which is slated to pay up to $100,000, would be a liasion for the county to retain business in the county. It was voted in 6-1. David has more here.

If it is true that the sheriff's department is going to cut back on deputies, how can the county add a $100,000 job to the budget?

In the words of Supervisor Tracy Pyles, "Why rush into this?"
