Chickasaw County, Iowa – The Chickasaw County Compensation Board has voted to recommend to raise elected-government officials 10 thousand dollars.
The board’s recommendation comes after Compensation Board representative Steve Lynch discovered the salaries are below normal compared to the 10 counties above and below the population of Chickasaw County.
The paid above average compared to similar size counties range from 1.1 percent to 17.9 percent for some departments, while supervisors fall short by 8.6 percent and the sheriff .7 percent.
However, the board voted to freeze the supervisor wages. The recommendation goes before the board of supervisors during budget negotiations.
