Health chief given salary authority

(Winston-Salem Journal) - Staffing issues with a dormant health clinic in King could be resolved soon.

The Stokes County Board of Commissioners made a salary-policy adjustment yesterday that is expected to make it easier for county health officials to hire a more experienced health-care provider for the Southwestern Services Center.
