New laws effective today

October 01, 1998

Other local laws taking effect today:

- Allow alcoholic beverages to be sold in restaurants on Sundays starting at 11 a.m. instead of noon. The law also increases the Sunday hours of operation at bars if the following Monday is a federal holiday.

- Increase the salary of the Washington County State's Attorney from $67,840 a year to $90,428, an increase of more than 33 percent. The raise does not actually take effect until after this year's election in November. Incumbent State's Attorney M. Kenneth Long Jr. is running unopposed.

- Increase salaries for members of the county liquor board from $4,600 to $9,600, and from $4,850 to $9,850 for the president.

- Increase the salaries of members of the county Board of Elections Supervisors from $2,000 to $2,300, and from $2,300 to $2,600 for the president.

- Stagger the four-year terms of the members of the newly expanded seven-member Washington County Board of Education. This year's election will result in the top three vote-getters earning four-year terms to the board, and the next two vote-getters earning two-year terms. That will set up a cycle that begins in 2000, when four seats open for election to full four-year terms. In 2002 three seats will be up for election to full terms.

- Allow the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts to add six members to its board of trustees.
