Elected officials, minus supervisors, awarded 2.5 percent raise
COUNTY – Most elected officials in Shelby County will see a 2.5 percent salary increase under a proposal approved by the county’s board of supervisors Tuesday.
After hearing recommendations from the county’s compensation board, the supervisors voted to implement the 2.5 percent increase for the auditor, treasurer, recorder, attorney and sheriff (and chief deputy). The three supervisors will not receive an increase next year.
The compensation board, which met last Friday, had recommended a 3.5 percent cost of living increase as well as a half-percent catch-up increase, for a total four percent salary hike for all of the elected officials but the supervisors. The board recommended no increase for the supervisors.
