County Board raises salaries for elected officals

McLeod County commissioners and elected officials were awarded raises at the Dec. 15 County Board meeting.
The raises amount to 2 percent plus 20 cents per hour, which is equivalent to what other county employees received.
Commissioner Doug Krueger voted against the commissioner raises, saying he could not vote for a raise for himself when he voted against a levy increase. Krueger felt the county has not done enough to curtail spending.
Commissioner salaries for 2016 will be $28,497. Per diems for meetings will stay the same at $40 per half day and $80 for a full day.
Other elected official salaries are: County Attorney Mike Junge, $106,394; Auditor-Treasurer Cindy Schultz Ford, $78,674; Sheriff Scott Rehmann, $81,187; and Recorder Lynn Ette Schrupp, $71,463. Those salaries were approved unanimously by the Board.
