The Davison County Commission has decided that its recent 10 percent pay raise is too much and has opted for a smaller increase instead.
Last week, the commission, in a 3-2 vote, approved a 2 percent increase plus 50 cents an hour based on a full-time work year of 2,080 hours. It was the same formula applied to all full-time county employees, and it took each commissioner’s salary to $14,112.
Tuesday, the commissioners reconsidered and enacted a new salary figure that still includes the 2 percent raise but reduces the commissioners’ base hours to 1,040 hours a year.
The cut means the new 2010 commission salary will be $13,592 instead of $14,112, which equates to a 6 percent raise instead of the original 10 percent increase.
