So apparently I was wrong when I wrote a few Sundays ago that the Linn County Compensation Board would certainly reconvene and clean up the county salary debacle. Instead, comp board members took the Board of Supervisors request to meet again and slapped it back over the net. Scheduling difficulties, you know how it is.
The Gazette’s Adam Belz has the story here this morning.
I was wrong, but that’s not surprising. Nor is it shocking that the comp board would want to avoid wading back into the muck a month after it recommended 6 percent pay hikes for county elected officials.
