Jailers’ wages in Washington County have been approved. This week the Washington County Board of Supervisors approved the pay increases for the 13 jailers in the county. A second motion was made regarding the wages by Supervisor Richard Young to approve the step increases on the anniversary of each employee’s hire. Supervisors Jack Seward and Steve Davis stated the scale was better than they had anticipated. The supervisors along with Sheriff Jerry Dunbar and his office had been working since late June to develop a pay scale and step increase for the non-unionized jailers.
