Davison County Commission Gives Pay Raise To Elected County Officials

The Davison County Commission on Tuesday voted to increase the salaries of elected officials by 2 percent plus 50 cents an hour based on a forty hour work week for 2014.  County Auditor Sue Kiepke says the one exception was the county treasurer, who was making less than the county auditor and register of deeds.  Her salary bump will put her at an equal base salary with those two positions.  Kiepke says longevity is also factored in to salaries, but those numbers are not published.

The County Commissioners will vote on their own salaries plus those of hourly employees at the next Davison County Commission meeting, scheduled for Tuesday at 9 am at the Davison County Courthouse.
