Spreading the wild wage fire
Commissioner Bill Tveit brought a fire extinguisher with him to the Mercer County Commission meeting, but it wasn’t for a literal fire.
“It scares me that we cannot have an open discussion without someone going out of here and starting a fire and someone else fanning that fire continually for two weeks,” he said. “We need to be responsible as leaders and as employees. I think as a commission we have a right to have a discussion for the well-being of our employees.”
