ROANOKE - The village board plans to look into the possibility of outsourcing a contract to fill a spot in the maintenance department, it was determined at the Nov. 19 meeting.
Ryan Durbin, who worked for the village for approximately two and a half years, recently resigned to accept another job. According to local officials, this is the third departure over a recent stretch in the department. Due to the turnover, transitions have been difficult with only a few employees left to do the work at critical times.
“We need someone and we need them quickly,” board president Mike Smith commented.
Smith added a professional contracting agency would have resources the village does not have to find the right person to fill the position including better screening processes, a Human Resources (HR) department, better access to a larger potential workforce and the networking to recruit people with the necessary skill levels.
