Lawrence County Council appoints salary ordinance committee

LAWRENCE CO. – The Lawrence County Council has appointed a Salary Ordinance Committee to evaluate the salary ordinance prior to the budget hearings later this year.

Appointed to the committee are Scott Smith, Jeff Lytton, and Janie Craig Chenault.

This comes following Superior Court II Judge Bob Clines rescinding the mandate for salaries of Superior Court II personnel.

According to Scott Smith the committee will be talking with various department heads to see where issues may lie surrounding salaries within each department.

A report on their findings is expected prior to the budget hearings this year.
