Sound Off

I'd like to know when the county is going to bring the pay scale for its employees up to the same dollar amount as surrounding counties and the city of Lawrence? ... Whatever happened with the pay differential study the county did a few years ago?

Pam Madl, Douglas County's director of administrative services, said the county has increased the pay scale for a number of positions in the past several years.

"When doing competitive surveys, we not only look at the position title, but also at the responsibilities to ensure that the comparison is appropriate," she said. "I am not sure which 'pay differential study' is being referred to. The commissioners base the cost of living increase on economic conditions for the region."
