County Updates Affirmative Action Guidelines

Macomb, IL – An update of the McDonough County Affirmative Action Policy will focus on notifying minority groups when there are job openings. Board Member Linda Jani says the update was a response to the NAACP appearing before the board to ask for more of an affirmative search for minority employees. Jani says representatives from any minority group can ask to be notified. However, given the county's tight budget situation, she expects few openings.
