County considers $2 raise for judicial commissioners
Placeholder Image
County commissioners are considering a $2 raise for judicial commissioners in an effort to stem the high turnover rate.The county’s Budget and Finance Committee met to consider several proposed departmental budgets for fiscal year 2015-16. Among the budgets were the county executive, finance, property assessor, trustee, veterans service, circuit court clerk, general sessions court, juvenile court, environmental codes, and the budget for judicial commissioners. Each budget included requests for raises, which were systematically removed by committee members due to the county’s tradition of giving across-the-board raises to its employees.
