Adding sense to Franklin County's purchasing policy



Purchasing has one full-time and one part-time staff person, and Leitz said the solution to problems may be to hire an additional full-time person and to have each of the county’s larger departments, like Social Services and Public Health, devote a staff person to purchasing issues.

“They easily have a one-person equivalent who just does nothing but purchasing,” he said, adding that the Purchasing Department would handle the needs of smaller staffs in departments, such as Weights and Measures and Public Transportation.

The idea comes at the same time department heads continue to cope with 11 staff layoffs that were part of last year’s county budget.
