No Decision On Budget Officer's Proposed Raise

Still no decision on a divided issue in Smith County.

The County Commissioners met this morning to discuss a possible raise for budget officer Jeff Clark.

Clark is the man who proposed cutting jobs and funding across the county. The proposed raise would take his salary from $60,000 to $75,000 and give him an additional job as IT Director.

Commissioner Sharon Emmert, who proposed the change, also wants to add another employee to the budget office at a salary of about $31,000.

Both issues have been tabled, as the court waits for more information that could arrive as early as this week.
