Citizens upset with Beaver County Commissioners for letting employees leave early while being paid during recent cold snap during Ask the Commissioners

(Beaver Falls, PA.) The Beaver County Commissioners made their monthly appearance on Ask the Commissioners on 1230 WBVP and 1460 WMBA during Teleforum with Frank Sparks.

The Show started off with Frank welcoming in Commissioners Sandie Egley and Tony Amadio for this months show, Commission Chairman Dan Camp was not able to attend due to other commitments.

Recently during the cold snap a listener called and informed Beaver County Radio and the listeners that Beaver County Employees were allowed to go home early because of the cold and were paid for the remainder of the day. This infuriated the listeners and many listeners called to express their displeasure with this move. Frank assured the listeners that it would be the first question he asked on the show this month and he kept his promise asking Amadio and Egley right out of the box about the situation. Egley said she was against it from the beginning and felt everyone is already here why send them home. A caller ripped into both commissioners about this and Egley said “wait I was against this and I’m only one vote” the caller then apologized and Amadio answered that it was a decision that was made for the safety of the employees and it started with President Judge Rick Mancini and Camp and he felt it was best and thus the departments were aloud to go to a skeleton crew so that employees could leave early and be paid for the rest of the day. The Commissioners received phone calls of people not happy that this happened and Egley continually said she was against it and Amadio said thank you for your input it has been duly noted.

Other topics that were discussed during the show were the voting machines and the requirement by a new state law that the county has to replace the current voting machines and the situation with BCTA and the them wanting to change some of their routes and bus stops.  If you would like to see the entire interview as it streamed Live on Facebook click the play button below…
