    Salary Schedule

    During the Fiscal Court meeting held on Tuesday, August 13, Judge Executive Tommy Turner proposed a 3 percent pay increase for county government employees.

    “The increase will not effect elected officials, such as myself,” said Turner, “it’s for any of those that have a salary schedule, such as the road department. They will get either the salary schedule increase or the 3 percent increase, whichever is greater.”

I watch a lot of old westerns on TV and one scene in many of them is the cowboy hurt, in the desert, and his canteen dry.
