Supervisors to consider employee bonuses Tuesday

The Gloucester County Board of supervisors has a fairly lengthy agenda for its meeting Tuesday that will begin at 7 p.m. in the colonial courthouse. Among the items to be discussed is the possibility of giving county employees bonuses.

Gloucester Point district supervisor Bobby Crewe brought up the issue last month, following a 4-3 vote by supervisors to change the way the county’s school system is funded from lump sum to categorical.
