County Budget Committee votes for equal pay raise

All county employees would receive a $1,500 yearly increase
The Randolph County Budget Committee met Dec. 6 to revisit “a couple of things” which was approved at last week’s budget meeting, the foremost of which was a 7.5% cost of living increase for all county employees.
 
Justice Carl Wells suggested in lieu of a 7.5% raise, the committee elect to give all employees an equal pay increase of $1,550 in order to close the gap between the higher and lower paying positions.
