MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Madison County Commission is taking steps to be more efficient. Commissioners are looking at a new process to help with time management. Specifically, they want help improving accounting for the time county employees are at work, out sick, or on vacation.

The Commission is trading in the older, more traditional time clock for a new, high-tech finger scanner. Commissioner Phil Riddick said this new process will eliminate the hassles of paperwork and ultimately save the county money.

"Each county employee will be able to go to a computer screen and see how much vacation and sick time they've accrued, and so will their supervisor," Riddick said.

The commission had tabled or rejected other time management proposals in the past.

The new system, manufactured by Kronos, will cost an estimated $300,000. Commissioner Riddick said it could save up to one percent of the county's annual salaries. The system is expected to pay for itself within two years.
