Knox Commission discusses future of CTAS

The fifteen Knox County employees who signed up to complete a continuing education class this year can still collect their bonuses of up to $1,000.

But Knox County Commissioners voted Monday to suspend the program in the future until an investigation in to the practice is complete.

The program, known as CTAS, first came under scrutiny when it was discovered several employees were awarded bonuses when they didn't complete the coursework.

 

The revelation prompted an ongoing investigation in to Trustee John Duncan's office.

Commissioners say they will wait until the investigation is complete to decide the fate of the program. Finance Director Chris Caldwell says it costs the county about $35,000 annually.
