County officials at odds over pay scale
Some of the county’s elected officials attended a county commission workshop last week to express concerns over the proposed new pay scale for county employees. The new pay plan, pending the adoption of the 2016-17 county budget by the commission, would give all employees of the Clerk and Master, County Clerk, Trustee, Register of Deeds, Circuit Court Clerk, Assessor of Property, and the County Mayor’s offices an increase in salary. They would be paid at a percentage of their employer’s salary, however, which is where the officials disagree with the commission.
