Several elected DuPage County officials could get pay bumps over the next two years to keep them in line with what other officials receive.
The county board next month is expected to set pay scales for the auditor, coroner, recorder, circuit court clerk and six county board members for the fiscal years 2017 through 2020. The key issue is whether those officials — all of whom are up for election in November — should get 2 percent pay raises for fiscal 2017, which starts Dec. 1, and for fiscal 2018.
Supporters say the raises are appropriate because the board agreed two years ago to give 2 percent salary increases during each of those two years to the county’s other elected officials.
“The question is, do we keep everybody the same so that all the board members are making the same?” board member Brian Krajewski said during a Tuesday finance committee meeting.
