Klickitat County Looks At Pay Scale

Klickitat County is taking a look at its pay scale, and trying to determine if it is competitive as it can be.  County Commissioner David Sauter says with a tight labor market, they’ve had issues filling positions, noting they also want to make sure current employees are also receiving competitive compensation.  Sauter states that long-term they won’t be able to sustain the level of wage growth they’ve seen without making changes in spending priorities.  He adds the County has revenue potential in the Dallesport Industrial Park, and success in marketing it would grow the tax base, which Sauter points out under Washington’s current system is the only way for counties to deal with budget issues.
