Marion County Board to Meet Again Before ReorganizationThe work of the outgoing Marion County Board is not complete after all. A special meeting of the board that will leave office at the end of the month has been scheduled for Monday night.
The meeting has been called to deal with personnel issues and the 2012 tax levies. The board will be asked to approve wage increases for non-union county employees. The proposal includes a $500 flat sum payment for the fiscal year that ends on November 30th and a $750 raise for the coming fiscal year. The proposal also includes a 30-cent an hour increase for non-union part-time employees. The board will be asked to approve a side letter for the labor union members in the assessor's office.
Consideration of the 2012 tax levies is also on the agenda.
The meeting will begin at seven Monday night in the board room on the first floor of the Marion County Courthouse.
A special meeting will be held on Monday night, December third, to reorganize the board. For the first time in decades, Republicans will be in the majority.
