LaGrange Council Salary Issues

LaGrange, IN

The LaGrange County Council had some salary issues to decide on Tuesday before it can approve a 2018 county budget.

Some – like a clerk for the county engineer and increases for the auditor’s chief deputy and deputy – were quickly adopted.

Others – like an increase for the prosecutor’s office manager and a second position in the GIS department – spurred some lengthy debate.

Prosecutor Greg Kenner told the council he wants to be able to keep good employees.

In general, county employees will receive up to 3 percent increases, while most department heads will get that plus an extra $1-thousand dollars. Three department heads – the surveyor, auditor and maintenance director – will get an extra $3-thousand dollars.

The county will pick up the increased cost of health insurance for the 166 employees on the county policy.

Council scheduled a special meeting for October 30th to formally adopt the budget and salary ordinance.
