Each of the Compensation board members believe the elected officials are entitled to a salary raise.  John Koley wanted the compensation board to consider a two-tier approach with both a base salary increase along with an increase for the cost of living expenses.  Board chairman Craig Bauerly countered Koley's proposal by saying he would not reccommend a salary base plus a cost of living increase.  Board member Larry Peterson reminded the Compensation Board that they need to be realistic with their recommendation to the Supervisors.  The Compensation Board started the discussion with a range of a bottom figure of three percent up to the ceiling of four and a half percent increase.  The first motion was to grant an across the board salary increase of 3 percent which failed from not receiving a second.  The second motion was a proposal for a salary raise of 3.5  percent increase in salary.  The motion failed on a 6 to 1 vote against the salary increase.  The board then decided to split the percentage of salary increases with the elected officials receiving a 4.5% increase and the supervisors were to get a 2.5% increase.  That proposal was defeated on a 4 to 3 vote against the measure.  Board member John Koley then made a motion consisting of a 4.8 percent increase for the elected officials and a 3.6 percent increase for the supervisors.  That motion failed due to not having a second.  Chairman Bauerly proposed a rate of 3.5 percent increase for the elected officials and for the supervisors to get a 2.5 percent increase.  That motion failed for not receiving a second to the motion.  Jeremy Bunkers then submitted a proposal that met with approval with the majority of the compensation board.  The proposal was to give elected officials  a 3.9% percent increase and the supervisors are to receive a 3 percent increase.  The measure passed on a 4-3 approval vote.  The proposal will be officially and formally  submitted to the County Board of Supervisors for their consideration during their next meeting.  Bauerly says it is now in the hands of the supervisors.
