MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - An Horry County councilman is proposing a program that could reward county workers tens of thousands of dollars for finding and eliminating wasteful spending.

The Sun News reports https://bit.ly/1Tgiolo that the idea is being proposed by Councilman Tyler Servant.

He says the county’s 2,100 workers are in a better position than elected leaders to find waste and wants to give them an incentive for doing so.

Under his proposal, workers would submit money-saving ideas to be reviewed by council members.

If savings are made, employees would be rewarded with a one-time bonus of 25 percent of the annual savings up to $50,000. Supervisors would get bonuses of 10 percent of the savings up to $25,000.

The idea will be on the agenda during county budget discussions next month.
