Worth County employees will be paid

After a Worth County Board of Commissioners meeting earlier this week, county employees were unsure of whether or not they would get paid today.

A county official approached the board saying they only had $40,000 in the bank account used to pay the employees and they needed $350,000 by Friday (today.)

Laverne Watkins, the county finance director, declined to do an interview but did offer a statement saying the county employees will be getting paid today.
