County workers to get direct deposit
BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- On a 2-1 vote Thursday, the Morgan County Commission will offer county employees direct deposit of their paychecks effective July 1.
About 40 of the county's 77 current employees want to participate in the direct deposit program, but on July 1, it will be mandatory for new employees, Commission President Brenda J. Hutchinson said.
The employee paychecks will be directly deposited into the bank of their choice, Hutchinson said.
Hutchinson and Commissioner Stacy A. Dugan voted in favor of the motion, but Commissioner Thomas R. Swaim opposed it, saying he did not want to force new hires to participate.
"I have problems with the new stuff," Swaim said.
