Washington County to add new jobs to meet Affordable Care Act demands


Washington County will add nine full-time jobs to manage an increasing caseload expected to come with the Affordable Care Act.

All five county commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to approve the new positions that will add about $500,000 in annual expenses.

Community Services Director Dan Papin called the move an "unusual" and "daunting" request, as he's never had to ask county officials to approve this many positions at once.
