Klickitat County Enters Final Stages Of Budget Work

Klickitat County Commissioners are entering the final stages of work on the County’s 2017 budget.  A preliminary budget document is ready, and perhaps most notably it includes a six percent pay increase for non-unionized employees.  County Commissioner Rex Johnston says that came about after a recent employee survey found most liked working for the County but felt the pay was low, and a comparison with other rural counties in Washington found that was the case.  He adds to keep good employees, the County must remain competitive with their compensation.  The County Commission will be approving the budget in December.
