Commissioners approve personnel matters

Three personnel matters were approved last Tuesday by the St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners.

Tim Barnes was promoted from road patrol officer to road patrol sergeant at $26.81 an hour retroactive to Jan. 27. A salary for Kitty Buchner was also approved. Starting April 1, Buchner will serve as jail administrator as the successor to the retiring Tim Schuler. Her salary is set at $61,000.

Also, Stoney Summey was approved as a new hire. Summey is the county’s veterans affairs and community outreach director, a position for which he will earn $59,800 a year.

Summey’s first day on the job was Tuesday and his office is located on the first floor of the county courthouse.
