Commissioners discuss possible pay raises for elected officials

Liberty County Commissioners discussed the possibility of raises for elected officials for the 2019-20 Fiscal Year during yesterday’s regular meeting. However, a decision was postponed until the next meeting when all commissioners can be present. Commissioner Pct. 2 Greg Arthur started the discussions yesterday by making a motion to keep salaries for 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. In other business, Liberty County Commissioners approved the final plat for a Dollar General Store to be located at the corner of state highways 105 and 146. Commissioners also approved a final plat for what’s called the Raymont Subdivision owned by CMHB Interests of Houston. That development will be along county roads 117 and 1170 in the Raywood area. We will have more from yesterday’s Liberty County Commissioners Court meeting in comings newscasts.
