Adams County supervisors vote to give themselves pay raise

The Adams County Board of Supervisors has approved a $4,300 raise for themselves.

The Natchez Democrat reports the board voted 3-2 in favor of the raise Tuesday. Supervisors, justice court judges, prosecuting attorney and board attorney will go from making $40,400 to $44,700 per year.

The supervisors were eligible for the raise after the county’s total assets surpassed $300 million, which happened last fiscal year. The valuation for the county’s assets is approximately $305 million for 2015.

Supervisor Angela Hutchins says many department heads have gotten raises over the past three years, while supervisors have gone 10 years without a raise.
