County Categories For Officers For Salary Purposes

Concerning the re-categorization of certain counties for the purpose of determining salaries paid to county officers in those counties.
2016 Regular Session
Local Government
Bill Summary

Prior to 2015, counties were classified into primary categories I to VII for purposes of determining the salaries of county officers. Four subcategories, A to D, were added to each primary category in 2015, which would result in the following percentage increases for terms beginning on or after January 1, 2016:
  • Subcategory A: 30% increase;
  • Subcategory B: 20% increase;
  • Subcategory C: 10% increase; and
  • Subcategory D: No increase.

All counties were classified in subcategory A of their respective primary categories, which would have resulted in a 30% increase for all county officers in the state. The act modifies the classifications of certain counties, resulting in smaller increases for officers from these counties.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
