(La Porte, IN) - La Porte County employees could receive something extra in their Christmas stockings. The La Porte County Commissioners today voted to give all county employees an unspecified bonus for continuing to work despite the risk of contracting the virus.
Commissioner Dr. Vidya Kora said many of the workers, such as medics, really put their lives on the line from jobs requiring frequent contact with members of the public. “I can’t thank them enough for the extraordinary work they have done. I think it will build morale and bring some holiday cheer,” he said.
Final approval rests with the La Porte County Council, which is in charge of setting the amount of the proposed stipend.
