Jailers Expecting Fat Paycheck

Nacogdoches County jailers are receiving what you could call, their own tailor made, economic stimulus check. They learned today they'll receive back pay for their comp time. Jailers work a lot of overtime because the state jail standards require a certain ratio of jailers and inmates. Improvements in jail operation has led to a reduction in the jail population. Consequently, the county can afford to devote $56,000 toward comp pay.   County Judge Joe English said,    " Our outside auditors are here this week doing an audit on the county and they categorize that comp time as liability. So not only is it a debt, it is a liability and so we're able to reduce our liability and our debt and that's a win win situation for Nacogdoches County." Jailers should have their checks in their next pay envelope.
