Raises for county elected officials on supes’ agenda

The compensation board’s recommendation of 2.5 percent raises for elected officials is on the agenda for the Greene County board of supervisors Monday at 9 am.

Board chair John Muir said at the compensation board’s meeting last month that he would support 2 percent raises for elected officials aside from the supervisors, and no raise for them.

The compensation board voted unanimously to recommend 2.5 percent raises. Members of the board, in addition to Fields and Schwarzkopf, are David Morain, Jim Unger, Tom Heater, Denise O’Brien Van and Aaron Schroeder.

The county’s unionized employees – secondary roads and the sheriff’s office – will receive 2.5 percent raises per contracts previously negotiated. The consumer price index is up less than 1 percent for the year.
