New supervisor position

The five-member St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners this week approved a request for a new supervisor position at Central Dispatch, as sought by its director, Jon Uribe.

Uribe on Tuesday explained the new position is for the day shift, which has been operating without a supervisor. He said the measure would create an additional position, but a current telecommunicator position would be eliminated and changed to the supervisor’s post.

Uribe said the change ensures all four dispatch center pods have a supervisor in the call center for all shifts.

The measure comes with an expense of about $3,900.
