Commissioners consider more raises

Carroll County Commissioners Donald I. Dell and Elmer C. Lippy said last week that they would consider giving pay raises to employees in agencies that receive some county money and some money from other sources.

Mr. Lippy said it would be the fair thing to do.

When the commissioners gave county employees pay raises two weeks ago, there was a backlash from employees who work for county-related agencies, such as the Sheriff's Department and Humane Society.

Those agencies receive some money for their budgets from the county but also receive money from the state and other sources.

Agency directors argued that their employees also should receive the $500 raise that county employees received.

In addition to the Sheriff's Department and Humane Society, the agencies include the state's attorney's office, the public library and the Board of Elections.

The commissioners agreed to give county employees a raise after saving $80,000 on health insurance claims last year.
