The Jackson County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a one-year contract with county manager Kevin Poe Monday night.
The contract will automatically be renewed on Jan. 1 of each year. If the board decides not to renew the contract, Poe must be given 90 days notice prior to the end of the calendar year.
Poe’s annual salary will remain at $140,000. He will take nine employee furlough days next year, so his salary will actually be less.
Poe also gets a $700-per-month automobile allowance since he provides his own vehicle.
