Carter County Commissioners Approve Pay Raise For County Sheriff’s Department Employees
Beginning Friday, all employees of the Carter County Sheriff’s Department will be receiving a five dollar per hour raise after county commissioners approved the measure Monday night. It’s been a back and forth battle to secure the raises. The department has enough funds to take care of the raises through the end of the year. It’s still not clear just how the increase in pay will be funded. That won’t be decided until the budget process begins next year.
