Town of Moreau increasing background checks on job applicants

Posted:

MOREAU, N.Y. -- The Town of Moreau says it continues to make progress in correcting the oversight that recently lead to a level two sex offender being hired as a worker in a town park.

After firing the worker, once word of his offender status became known, Supervisor Preston Jenkins tells the NEWS CENTER they've been using increased background and registry checks on job applicants, and have since hired three people.

By next week, Jenkins says he hopes to have a new written hiring policy in place.
