Job manual nearly done:

A two-year project to create an employee manual and specific job descriptions for Gilberts' public works personnel could be nearing completion. Officials on Tuesday went over recently created requirements and responsibilities for taking a job in the village's public works department. Staffing in that area is likely to increase as three new residential developments on the village's south side are realized. The job descriptions discussed Tuesday include specifics, such as how much weight an applicant should be able to lift and what type of licenses for operating equipment are necessary. The public works employee manual, which already has gained approval at the committee level, and the job descriptions could be up for a vote by the village board as early as next week.

Cary remains silent on meeting:

Following a three-hour closed meeting Tuesday night, the Cary village board took no action and offered no comment on what it discussed. "We're working on things and getting closer to taking action," Mayor Donald Huffer said. With several general topics on its agenda, including personnel and collective bargaining, Huffer did confirm that police issues were part of the board's discussion. He did not, though, give any more details. Earlier this month, several residents appeared before the board to address their concerns about the understaffed Cary Police Department. One of the more outspoken people was the owner of the White Hen Pantry on Cary-Algonquin Road whose store was robbed about two weeks before. That robbery marked the fifth in Cary since December. Huffer said the board may vote on some of the issues discussed Tuesday night at its next regular board meeting June 5.

Firefighter hearing set in Cary:

The Cary Fire Protection District board of trustees will hold a hearing today at 7 p.m. to discuss Lt. Brad Delatorre's punishment for a verbal argument he had in the fire station a few months ago. In April, the board decided to demote and suspend Delatorre for his actions, but after a majority of the district's firefighters stated they felt the punishment was too harsh, the board decided to hear Delatorre's side of the story and reconsider his punishment.
