12/21/2016 Commissioners Special Meeting Minutes

Warren County Commissioners Special Public Meeting

December 21, 2016 6:30 p.m.

Jackson Courtroom

Commissioner Cindy Morrison called the meeting of the Warren County Commissioners to order with Commissioner Benjamin Kafferlin, and Commissioner Jeff Eggleston present.

Staff Present: Pam Matve, Chief Clerk

Citizens Present: Josh Cotton (WTO), and Solicitor John S

Commissioner Cindy Morrison started the meeting out by stating that tonight’s meeting is to set the salaries for those who will be running for office next year for the term of 2018-2021. Those offices are; Prothonotary, Coroner, Tax Collectors, Judge of Elections, and Inspector (of Elections). The floor was then opened for discussion.

Commissioner Jeff Eggleston asked Pam Matve, the chart that is presented tonight, how did you come up with the figures. Pam Matve stated that she took what was done the last term and copied it for the this next term which is 2% for Prothonotary and Coroner, .06 per item for Tax Collectors, $3 per year increase for Judge of Elections, and $2 per year increase for Inspector.

Commissioner Cindy Morrison asked her fellow commissioner’s if we want to continue this trend for 2018-2020 term.

Commissioner Jeff Eggleston stated that he has no problem with continuing the 2% for Prothonotary and Coroner. We are in line with what these positions are paying in other sixth class counties. Commissioner Jeff Eggleston also stated that some counties do pay their Coroner a higher rate, but they do not give benefits as essentially they are part time. I do feel that the other positions should not be changed and I would prefer to hold the line.

Commissioner Benjamin Kafferlin stated that we have a mixed bag here I do believe from what I have learned about the coroner also is that if there is an interstate running through the county the pay is higher as the volume of call outs are higher. I am in favor of keeping the pay in line as it is presented here.

Commissioner Benjamin Kafferlin stated that the tax collectors to pay a vital role in their communities. Commissioner Cindy Morrison stated that the difference in counties could be that they are showing they pay .82 per item as they have to billings I the year which would make it 1.64 per item. Warren County has one billing, so we are in line.

Motion was made by Commissioner Benjamin Kafferlin, seconded by Commissioner Jeff Eggleston to keep the pay in line with what is presented below for the 2018-2020 term. Motion carried unanimously.
