ABBEVILLE, Ala. (WDHN) — Henry County is looking for more employees to fill current vacancies.
The pandemic has caused worker shortages everywhere and Henry County is no exception.
Probate Judge David Money says currently between 80 to 100 people are employed by the county, including law enforcement. The county is looking to hire deputies, road and bridge workers, and those who want to work in the probate office.
All of these local government jobs come with great benefits.
Judge Money says now that federal unemployment benefits will end in Alabama this weekend, more applicants have shown up interested in getting a job and the county has been able to hire a few new people already.
“We deal with minimum numbers we don’t hire any more than what we have to have, but each department has its own quota if you will and I will venture to say probably half of those departments are at least two to three employees short,” Money said.
Money added they are looking for hard-working and dedicated people to serve Henry County.
