Carrabelle cooperates with Workforce

Carrabelle is using a state program to primp and polish around town.

At the Feb. 7 city meeting, Mayor Curley Messer announced that the city has hired six temporary employees under the Work Force Florida training program.

Under this plan, unemployed workers can receive up to six months training working 20 hours a week.

Work Force pays for the trainees’ salaries and they are covered by state workman’s compensation.

Messer said Joann white helped the city implement the program.

City Clerk Keisha Smith said, “Some of the trainees are employed in streets and roads, some in water and sewer and some are doing building maintenance at the municipal center. We’re using them for routine maintenance we can’t get to like painting and greasing fire hydrants.”
