County considers pay raises

October 27, 2004|by TARA REILLY

A $1,500-a-year pay raise for Washington County Board of Education members got support from the County Commissioners on Tuesday.

The 2004 Washington County Salary Study Commission last week proposed the raise for the school board.

School Board members receive $4,800 a year. The board's president receives $4,900 a year. School Board members haven't had a raise in seven years.

The Washington County Delegation to the Maryland General Assembly must approve the raises, which would go into effect after the November 2006 elections.

The Study Commission, appointed by the commissioners, also recommended that the sheriff's annual pay increase from $67,500 to $90,000.

The commissioners said they supported an increase in the sheriff's pay, but they didn't support raising it to $90,000 a year.
