Commissioners use pay cuts to help balance budget

Scott County employees who are not part of a collective bargaining unit will see a reduction in pay for 2009. The county's board of commissioners took the action at its meeting Tuesday, Feb. 3, after a lengthy discussion on the county's 2009 budget.

The move is one of several budget cuts the county will be taking in anticipation of additional reductions in Local Government Aid (LGA) money it receives from the state. These reductions would be in addition to the $946,000 in LGA that the state unalloted in December. That amount came out of the 2008 budget.
