Pay adjustments and the county's wage study that is a dozen years old were discussed Wednesday by the Huron County Commissioners at its meeting. Probate Judge David Clabuesch noted the resolutions that were pending, one of which would take the board's Executive Assistant out of the wage study step program and grant a raise through a traditional salary. Clabuesch said that the board would be setting precedent and other department heads are watching, and they should approach it with a degree of caution. Other department heads, including the courts have tried to get increases for some key employees only to be dealing with the wage study and its step and grade levels. He noted that they are trying to retain people in their offices. Later the board approved the resolutions, including another that would reassign pay grades for inspectors in the Building and Zoning Office , upon a letter of agreement with the union. Jeff Smith of Building and Zone has previously noted his inspectors can do far better in the private sector when it comes to pay. During motions the board passed on that authorize the Personnel Committee to explore the development of a new wage and salary system and a benefits study. Commissioner Ron Wruble noted that what the employee gets is not just the salary but the benefits like the health insurance options the county has.
