Celebrate Jackson County Politico Pay Raise!!!

Here's a nice bit of local government reporting that offers perspective on this sneaky Courthouse move while the jail remains an ongoing nightmare. Take a look:

Jackson County pays its various board and commission members way more than other local governments do. Why?

In February 2015, longtime Jackson County Legislator Dennis Waits introduced an ordinance to raise the pay for persons serving on two of the county's commissions. The nine members of the Drug Commission and the five members of the Merit System Commission would now make $700 a meeting. It was quite a bump.
