County Commissioners Approve 2% Raise For Elected Officials



Cameron County Commissioners reported on the details of a special meeting held several days ago during their regular meeting held on Thursday in Emporium.

The special meeting was held on Tuesday, scheduled to set raises for elected officials for the next term. Commissioners approved raises of 2% per year for the next four years, the term of the next commissioners running from 2018-2021.

Commissioner Lori Reed stated that they contacted other counties and the Cameron County School District (CCSD) to see what raises were being given to elected officials across the region. Many were between 2.5% and 3%, or even higher. Commissioners stated that they wanted to give a raise that could be matched for hired employees over the same time period, and so kept the elected officials’ raises at a conservative number.
