County may pay civic fees

In an effort to heighten community relations, Pulaski County is considering a new policy that will pay civic organization membership costs for county supervisors and department heads.
The policy is among items to be considered tonight as part of the consent agenda for Pulaski County Board of Supervisors.
According to information provided to the supervisors in their meeting packets, the policy would encourage department heads and supervisors to participate in civic organizations. Such participation would be one means by which the county could support and strengthen community projects undertaken by civic organizations.
Under the policy, the county would pay non-meals-related membership costs to civic organizations. Payments would be made on a first-come, first-served basis. There would be a limit of $3,000 spent on membership fees in a year.
The policy will be implemented on a one-year trial basis, with hopes it will:
• Increase communications between key staff and the community.
• Strengthen the ability of civic organizations to meet community needs “at a time when involvement in civic organizations is declining.”
• Encourage other employers to consider similar financial support.

The supervisors meet tonight at 7 p.m. in the meeting room of the County Administration Building.
