EUREKA - As the county's finance committee enters the final stages of creating next year’s budget, one of the topics likely to be debated will be salaries for department heads.
Some department heads have asked for larger than normal salary hikes to put their pay more in line with what other department heads at the courthouse are paid. The issue came up after the committee discussed elected officials’ salaries and as individual budgets were presented to the finance committee.
As other department heads began presenting their budgets, they also asked for increases that would put their salaries more in line with the others in the courthouse.
