Salaries, payroll out of balance
Since the year 2000, county salaries have doubled. Total wages are up 100 percent in 13 years, according to a November 2013 salary survey.
Supervisors commissioned an update to a 2000 study by the Stennis Institute last June to help the Board and administrators develop the Fiscal Year 2014 budget. But the report, dated November 26, 2013, was delivered too late to use as department budgets were set late last summer and into early fall.
Now county administrator Michael Thompson and interim comptroller Alex Wiley are studying the report to help them get a handle on finances.
