Supervisors approve boiler project

The Webster County Board of Supervisors approved a project that would help improve the heating at the Webster County Law Enforcement Center during its regular meeting Tuesday. The board approved a quote for $14,467 to insulate boilers in the Law Enforcement Center.

“The heat is building up in the boiler room,” said Supervisor Clark Fletcher. “It’s been recommended to insulate valves and pipes.”

The insulation could mean as much as a $1,200 savings in heating costs per year.

In other business, the board approved a salary increase to $60,000 for Assistant County Attorney Joseph Tofilon, and a wage increase to $20.96 per hour for targeted case manager and accepted the resignation of Michael Halligan, sheriff deputy sergeant, effective Feb. 19. Also approved was the appointment of Ken Hays as Webster County Social Services director.
