Could Dougherty County employees be getting a bonus?
If you're a full time employee in Dougherty County, the Dougherty County Finance Commission wants to give you a bonus.
On Tuesday, the finance committee announced they are recommending the approval to include in their budget giving all full time employees $600 as a thank you for all their hard work.
Chairman Lamar Hudgins says, "not many years ago we had to have unpaid holidays which amounted to like a two percent pay cut. We only did that once but we just feel like it's the right thing to do."
They will make a final vote on Friday.
