NorCo Spends Nearly $30k For Timeclocks That May Never Be Used
In a classic illustration of what is wrong with the Brown administration, it attempted to shove something down the throats of workers without even attempting to build a consensus.
The records obtained from Barron reveal that NorCo first paid Kronos $7,810 in January 2016 for two timeclocks, including $810 for support service. In December 2016, it purchased five more systems at a cost of $19,526.75, including $2,025 for one year of support service.
In addition to the payments to Kronos, which include an annual support service fee of $405 for each timeclock, the County is paying Diefenderfer Electric an installation fee of $377 per machine.
Basically, Executive John Brown and Human Resources Director Amy Trapp have just flushed $30,000 in taxpayer dollars down the toilet for a timekeeping system that in reality will only be used for a handful of workers, if at all.
