RAISES AND THE LACK OF THEM FOR SOME COUNTY EMPLOYEES BECAME A SOURCE OF DEBATE AT TUESDAY’S WOODBURY COUNTY SUPERVISORS MEETING.

COUNTY AUDITOR PAT GILL SAYS BACK ON APRIL 29TH, WHILE MASTER SHERIFF’S DEPUTIES AND SERGEANTS GOT A 2 PER CENT RAISE, DEPUTIES COVERED UNDER THEIR UNION CONTRACT RECEIVED RAISES OF UP TO 14 PER CENT.


OC…10 PER CENT RAISE. :13

13 OF 31 DEPUTIES RECEIVED A 4 PER CENT RAISE OR GREATER.

STAFF MEMBERS OF THE AUDITOR AND COUNTY ATTORNEY’S DEPARTMENT WERE DENIED A RAISE.

GILL WAS AT A FUNERAL THE DAY THE BOARD APPROVED THE RAISES AND SAYS HE WAS NOT PART OF THE DISCUSSION LEADING TO THE VOTE:

BOARD CHAIRMAN GEORGE BOYKIN SAYS HE WILL FIND OUT HOW THE COMPENSATION WAS FINALIZED THAT LEFT SOME STAFF WITHOUT RAISES WHILE OTHERS, LIKE WAGE PLAN EMPLOYEES RECEIVED 3 AND A HALF PER CENT :


OC….. TALKING ABOUT. :10

GILL SAYS HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ASKED FOR HIS INPUT AND TO LOOK AT THE NUMBERS.

JAMES VAN BRUGGEN OF THE TAXPAYERS RESEARCH COUNCIL SAYS HE WAS SURPRISED BY THE REVELATIONS TUESDAY AND BY GILL BEING LEFT OUT OF THE ORIGINAL DISCUSSION:


OC…REAL NUMBERS ARE. :21

VAN BRUGGEN SAYS EVERYONE WAS UNDER THE ASSUMPTION THAT THE RAISES WOULD BE TWO PER CENT AND IT’S SAD THAT THE BOARD DIDN’T HAVE THE REAL NUMBERS WHEN MAKING THE DECISIONS.
