DeSoto County Board Of Supervisors To Discuss Pay Raise
(DeSoto County, MS) The DeSoto County Board of Supervisors will discuss how it can raise the pay for employees.
Employees have not received a raise in four years.
The board is planning to give county employees a three percent raise, while trying to slash the budget by five percent.
Supervisor Harvey Lee said he expects cuts will be made to 12 county agencies, which would save the county around $500,000.
Under state law, the budget must be approved by Sept. 15 and published by Sept. 30. It takes effect October 1.
A public hearing on the budget will be held Tuesday at 9 a.m. at the DeSoto County Administration Building in Hernando.
