Adams County offices that currently have full-time employees may not necessarily get to keep full-time employees, according to Adams County Commissioners.
Community Corrections Executive Director Ian Gilbert met with commissioners Monday to ask for permission to hire a full-time replacement for the office's administrative assistant, who will be leaving at the end of August.
Gilbert said the position is, and always has been, full-time and he would like to keep it that way.
