Sullivan County Pay Raise One Step Closer
A unanimous vote at last nights meeting by the Sullivan County Budget Committee means a pay increase for county employees is one step closer. All Sullivan county employees except those in the sheriff’s department and school employees will get a 2 percent pay raise retroactive to April first if approved. 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 isn’t 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. The vote will now move to the full board on May 20th.
