Ada County Assessor Bob McQuade has axed four part time and two full time positions in the DMV (auto licensing and registration) division due to lagging auto sales–and fewer cars being registered.
He has also declined to fill two part time and two full positions which are currently vacant.
The Assessor’s DMV Division is not the only division funded by fees that’s experiencing job cuts associated with diminished revenues. Recently, Ada County Landfill Director Dave Neal reduced his five full-time employees to part-timer status in an attempt to make up for a 17% decline in revenues paid by landfill customers. The department will also leave one part-time position unfilled.
Does this mean there is also less trash? Looks like that is an economic problem in SOUTHERN UTAH.
One thing worth noting. Whether full or part time, Ada employees all get FULL benefits. Sometimes the bennies are worth 80% on top of the part time salary. Few private sector part time jobs offer full benefits.
