To Be Fair All Sullivan County Employees Should Get Raises
All Sullivan county employees except those in the sheriffís department and school employees will get a 2 percent pay raise retroactive to April first if approved. The proposal is endorsed by two of the Sullivan County Commissionís three primary committees. The commissionís Budget Committee is considering the issue and could be voted on by the full commission May 20th. The major concession of the settlement between the Sheriff and the mayor provided a 2 percent pay raise for all Sheriffs employees, retroactive to April first at that time. Several county commissioners feel it isnít fair unless everyone gets a raise at the same time. The resolution is supported by seven co-sponsors as cit stands. A vote will require a waiver of the rules and needs two-thirds majority, or 16 votes to proceed. (bg)
