Commissioners Study Salary Increase For Elected Officials

Butler County Commissioners made quick work of their agenda Tuesday tabling what probably would have been a lengthy discussion for a later date.

Public Works Director Daryl Lutz recommended tabling a discussion on the development of a policy for the construction of rural wireless data structures in right-of-ways.

Lutz said his department was still in the process of deciphering the new law that allowed the towers and contacting companies to see what types and sizes of towers were being built.

Public works will bring recommendations back before the commissioners as a work session within the month.

The policy will include protection for both motorists and property owners.


Commissioners looked at two proposals for salary increases for elected officials. Both recommendations, prepared by Administrator Will Johnson are what he makes every year.

The first proposal was to give all elected officials a 4 percent raise across the board. The second was a 4 percent for all except commissioners.

Commissioners told Johnson to prepare a proposal that would raise all elected officials salaries, and to bring back exact dollar amounts that would raise salaries for each position.
