Amherst Co. Supervisors Approve Dispatchers Pay

Amherst Co., VA - Amherst County supervisors have approved paying back dispatchers for years worth of unpaid overtime.

The county manager says they authorized making the payments at a meeting Tuesday night, but he says they won't find out exactly how much money is owed until Monday.

The director of public safety says dispatchers, scheduled to work 48 hours every other week, were not receiving overtime and raised the issue last year.

The city manager says they're still figuring out a timeline for when dispatchers will be compensated.
