The compensation board recommended raises for each of the county elected officials in Washington County. The compensation board met Monday night and recommended the following increases: Supervisors 2.8%
County Attorney 5%
Sheriff 5%
Auditor 3%
Recorder 3%
Treasurer 3%

The Washington County Board of Supervisors will have the final vote setting the salaries. The supervisors can approve the recommendations or lower the rate, but they cannot increase the percentages beyond the recommendations.

The supervisors will consider the recommendations Friday at 1:30 during a special meeting. They will also discuss the budget at that time.
