County elected officials’ salaries

On March 9th, the Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing on the proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2017 and then certify the budget.  It’s an annual event and usually uneventful.  Barring any public outrage, I assume the Board will embrace the recommendations of the Compensation Board.

I presented a spreadsheet to the Comp Board for their consideration.  No one asked me a question about it.

Thus far, the poll below has not generated many votes.  For the poll to stir a whisper, at least 600 votes need to be cast.  So please take the time to vote.  Or comment on this blog if you have an opinion on salaries for Linn County’s elected officials.  -Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor.
