COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- The Collier County Clerk of Court says he needs more money to keep employees from leaving for higher paying jobs.
County commissioners approved $342,000 on Tuesday for the clerk to use for payroll. Dwight Brock says his staff is not paid on the same level as other county employees so they are leaving for other county jobs.
"That was a consistent thing. We've lost 14 people over the last 15 months out of my finance staff. I only have 37 so that's quite a hit and it's all a consequence of we didn't have the money to pay," said Brock, Collier County Clerk of Court.
The money will be used to pay about half of the clerk's employees. The other half, to pay court staff, will come from another source.
