Elected Officials’ Salaries: Liberty County Commissioners discussed the possibility of pay raises for elected officials for the 2019-20 Fiscal Year during yesterday’s regular meeting. Commissioner Pct. 2 Greg Arthur started the discussions by making a motion to keep salaries for all elected officials at the current levels. Commissioner Pct. 3 “Boo” Reeves said he agreed. On the other hand, Commissioner Pct. 4 Leon Wilson said he favors a 3 percent pay increase for all elected officials. Commissioner Pct. 1 Bruce Karbowski was not at yesterday’s meeting. With a difference of opinions from those present, Liberty County Judge Jay Knight requested the decision be tabled until the next meeting on Tuesday, May 28. That way, all commissioners will be able to vote on whether or not to give elected officials raises for the 2019-20 fiscal year.
