County commissioners approved a resolution at Monday’s meeting for a general wage increase for county employees during 2013.
The increase of $2,000 a year for full-time and elected officials and $1,000 for part-time employees will be paid in equal quarterly installments under the commissioners’ plan. County commissioners and council members will be considered part-time.
“Our employees have not received any wage increases for five years,” said Commissioner Larry Miller. “It’s time we do something about this.”
