Chickasaw County to give raises to elected official positions

Reported by the New Hampton Tribune, the Chickasaw County Compensation Board has approved salary boosts for elected officials to help attract wider talent. 

The board recommended a 6 percent raise for all elected officials – and a 14 percent raise for the sheriff’s position to compete with other law-enforcement agencies.

“There was a general feeling that we have to have salaries that will attract good people to run for these offices,” Compensation Board Chairman Michael Kennedy said. “If we are going to do that, we need to do something like this.”
