Coolidge streamlines hiring, lifts city-wide freeze

As the economic climate for the City of Coolidge has improved over the past years, past measures of fiscal conservatism can be seen as out-of-date. This attitude has been applied to the city’s hiring freeze, which was created in 2008 in response to the recession.

By a vote of 5-1, with Jacque Hendrie-Henry being the lone dissenter, the Coolidge City Council Monday removed the hiring freeze on all job openings already budgeted for in the city’s budget. This means if a vacancy is created by somebody leaving their position, the department head can fill it without getting the approval of council. This does not include hiring for a new position or training existing employees.
