County department heads, assistant department heads, and managers will receive a one percent salary increase effective immediately, the board voted 4-1 on Tuesday; Supervisor Peter Adam voted no. The employees’ wages were frozen during the recession and weren’t bumped up until June 2013. County staff say the increases will mirror those recently awarded to workers represented by SEIU Local 620 and Local 721. The raises will cost $460,000 this year, with funds set aside in the new budget and with some federal and state monies.
