Village joins county work team

Thursday, October 11, 2012 - Updated: 8:39 AM

FORT PLAIN — Fort Plain has joined the Montgomery County Employment Team, and will be incorporating four Work Experience Program members into the village’s workforce as soon as next week.

The program places people receiving county benefits into jobs. In Fort Plain, Superintendent of Public Works George Capece is the designated foreman, transporting the workers to their job sites, also reporting on the workers to Commissioner Michael McMahon. If the workers don’t show up, or if they do an unsatisfactory job, their entitlements may be at risk.

Fort Plain Mayor Guy Barton said that two workers will be assigned jobs at the Fort Plain Senior Center, where they will paint the building’s interior. Two will also be assisting the Fort Plain DPW in cleaning streets, and doing jobs such as working at the reservoir.

While the county tries to assign local people in the positions, they must only be residents of Montgomery County to participate.
