Three positions have been eliminated in the Anderson County Zoning and Public Works Department, and taxpayers can expect to save more than $100,000 each year, Mayor Terry Frank announced Monday.
It’s part of an office restructuring triggered by the economic downturn, Frank said.
A press release said a department planning position and geographic information system, or GIS, coordinator job have both been eliminated. The planning work will now be handled by the East Tennessee Development District, working under a contract with the county. The mayor’s office and property assessor’s office will share a GIS coordinator, “reinstating shared services that have existed in the past.”
