DeKalb County To Outsource Development Department

DeKalb County will vote later this month on whether CH2M HILL or Nova Engineering will take over the County’s Development Department.  The selected company would then likely hire 30 workers and retain 12 of the County’s development department employees.  The plan would eliminate another 28 county employees and save the county about $3 million.

However, County Commission Larry Johnson challenged the anticipated savings.

“If the goal is to save money and you hire the same number of people, where is the cost savings?” said District 3 Commissioner Larry Johnson.

A vote is expected this month with the selected company assuming control May 1.
