Poll: Tell us what you think about the city hiring just one person to handle HR

There are pros. There are cons. Is it worth it to save the taxpayers $70-$85k per year? Or, is it too big of a job for just one person?

Recently, Mayor Ted Bettencourt decided to combine the human resources department for Peabody, tapping Karen Budrow to handle all of the hiring and other HR duties for the entire city. Previously, there were two HR directors, one for the schools, and one for the rest of the city.

EOP would like to know in today’s poll what you think of this consolidation.  Here are the details of Budrow’s hiring from the Peabody Patch.
