Hickman County Health Department - contract nurse and clerk
(Hickman) County to send formal protest to Dr. Stack's office (State Department of Health) in regard to Purchase District Health Department not providing services for citizens here..
The nurse and clerk were hired under contract instead of being hired directly under the Purchase District Health Department. "In other words, they were hired by contract where they would not be put in the state retirement system," he said.
He said both of them recently made a request to the director of the Purchase District Health Department to be put under the state's retirement plan. "We were assured at the local health board meeting, and I was assured at the district meeting, that these ladies would not be asked to take a pay cut."
