ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) -- Six elected officials in St. Charles County haven’t had a raise since 2007, but a plan under consideration would increase their pay by 15 percent. The catch is it won’t be effective until 2015.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Republican County Executive Steve Ehlmann has proposed the raises for himself and five other elected officials. Fifteen percent was recommended because that’s how much the typical salary would have gone up from 2007 to 2015 through a series of incremental increases.
Councilman Jerry Daugherty, a Democrat, says he’ll vote against the raises that are expected to be considered at a meeting on Monday. But the proposal appears to have the support of a majority of the county council.
