County managers get salary increases
In a meeting that lasted only 20 minutes, the Pierce County Board voted last week to give 2.5 percent raises to non-union employees and approved amendments to the county's manure storage law.
The raises, which are retroactive to Jan. 1, will go to about 50 workers. The group includes department heads and managers, but not elected officials or the county's administrative coordinator. (Editor's Note: The Herald will publish the new salaries when those details are available.)
