The Elk County Salary Board shot down two motions Tuesday afternoon concerning requests from the county's sheriff's department.
Theresa Merritt, chief deputy of the sheriff department, requested the creation of a third full-time deputy position and a name-change for the "first deputy" position to "lieutenant," but both motions died for lack of a second and were denied.
