WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) - The Waukesha County board chairman is proposing to cut the pay for the position in half.

WTMJ-TV (https://bit.ly/1sjsDHz ) Chairman Paul Decker submitted a proposal to the board to reduce future chairmen’s pay from about $58,000 a year to $29,000. The cut would take effect after the next chairman is elected in April 2016 if it passes.

Decker says he wants to make a proactive change after watching the Milwaukee County board fight over its pay. He says payment should be based on productivity instead of hours.

There are no plans to change the pay for other Waukesha County board members, who make $9,500 a year.
