DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Elected officials in Dubuque County will get pay raises, but it will be less than half of what a panel recommended.

The Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2mCPOyA ) county supervisors Monday unanimously approved 3.5 percent salary increases for elected officials. That’s in line with the raises approved for county staff who aren’t part of a union, though is far less than the 7.5 percent increase recommended by an advisory board.

Annual salaries for elected officials range from $48,605 for supervisors to $122,726 for the county attorney.

Joe Link, who heads the compensation board, says the recommendation for a large pay raise reflects that most Dubuque County elected officials earn far less than their peers in other counties.
