It Seems the County Council Is Getting a Raise Afterall!
November 18, 2009 Leave a comment
Days after dozens of citizens testified against the current pension program, a county board recommends a raise for our favorite civil servants. I remember a councilman shouting out in the midst of the testimonies that there was no raise on the table. So did this just spurt up out of no where? Are these guys trying to get fired?
Here’s an excerpt from Bryan Sears article at ExploreBaltimoreCounty.com
“The county five-member Personnel and Salary Board voted 4-0 Wednesday morning to approve an 8 percent raise for the next county executive. The salary will increase from $150,000 to $162,000. A fifth member was not present and did not vote.
Also recommended was an 8 percent raise to increase the council chairman’s salary from $60,000 to $64,800 and the base salary for a council member from $54,000 to $58,320. That proposal failed.”
