Barton County Commission meeting
Placeholder Image

Dear Editor,
In the interest of full public disclosure, I tender this addendum to the Tribune’s Dec. 31 coverage of the Barton County Commission meeting of Dec. 30.
The Tribune noted that the commission “approved a 25-cent-per-hour increase for “most” (my emphasis) county employees, including elected officials and county commissioners.”
To my mind, it ought be noted that there was an exeption to the adjective “most.” The commission also approved an increase of $2.99 per hour for Register of Deeds.
For the public record, I want it known that I did no approve this $2.99/hour increase that totals over $6,000/year.
