The Marshall County Board of Supervisors faced one of those annual decisions which is always tough; Adjusting the pay for elected county officials. The County Compensation Board recommended increases for all the officials, including a fourteen percent increase for the Auditor and Recorder. While that may seem a bit much on the surface, Supervisor Vice-Chair Dave Thompson says that when the Auditor and recorder were combined into one office, no adjustment was made. He says the current board righted that wrong.
Among the other increases approved by the Board, a ten percent increase for the County Attorney, a five percent increase for Sheriff, four-point-two percent more for the Treasurer and one-point-seven-five percent for the Supervisors.
