Funny thing is Moser has said multiple times that the EH Supervisor she brought from Madison County has to retrain the current EH staff. The kicker is that once they got here it took several months for him and the other sanitarian to pass and become authorized by the state to work with the types of soils we have here– what usually takes a week if you have the proper education and prepare yourself for the training.
The Pender County EH staff had a food & lodging compliance rate of 100% for 4 of the last 5 years with one of those being 97%, which was last year. Moser and her EH boys had 76% in Madison for that time frame. The current EH staff of 3 had the permitting wait time at approx 2 weeks, with just a few exceptions, until Moser and boys arrived. Adding those 2 positions increased the permitting wait time from 2 weeks to 6-8 weeks. I ask you, who needs to train who? Are there any citizens that want the health department to spend over $100,000 more for 2 more positions? I know I don’t.
