For those residents who don't know it the deputies contract includes a 1% higher pay clause. The raises will cost the county $2.1 million a year. The vote was 4-0 consent. I thought this would be a good vote for Don Horsley to recuse himself from since he was our former Sheriff and is backed by this union. He choose to vote.
Supervisor Don Horsley quotes.
When asked where is the money going to come from?
"We'll have to worry about that at the time."
"We're hoping the economy will get better."
"It helps us with our budget and doesn't solve the whole problem, but (the deputies) are contributing to the solution."
Supervisor Carole Groom quote.
"She can't predict what the economy will be in 2015, but is hopeful it will turn around for everyone."
