Pay Raise For County Board  4/18/17

 

  The last time that the Taylor County Board of supervisors got a pay raise was in the year 2011.  At Tuesday’s county board meeting supervisor Sue Breneman told the board that in order to make the position more appealing to potential candidates, the pay needs to be in line.  The proposal was to increase the pay from $50 to $75 per meeting.  Several members expressed concern on the 50% amount of increase.  County accountant Larry Brandl indicated that the increase would have a negligible impact on the county tax levy.  Lester Lewis said that in comparison to similar sized counties, Taylor County was below average in their board and chairman pay rates.  Mike Bub proposed cutting the increase from 75 to $60 per meeting but that proposal failed by a 7 yes and 9 no vote count.  The original proposal to raise the pay to $75 per meeting and $100 for full day events passed, but had 5 supervisors, Krug, Hanson, Bub, Mildebrand and Knoll voting no.  The pay increase will take effect after the next county board election.
