Clearfield – After enduring a 14-year salary freeze, the future pay for Clearfield County’s elected officials will likely be getting a boost.
At a special meeting of the Clearfield County Commissioners Wednesday night, the solicitor was given authority to draft a resolution that would set and increase the salaries for elected officials who take office beginning in 2024.
Under the proposed plan, there would be a first year pay increase of 7.5 percent for the sheriff, treasurer, coroner and controller, and a 6 percent increase for the commissioners, prothonotary and register and recorder.
The increase would be 4 percent in year two of the plan, and 2 percent in years three and four, and would apply to all office holders.
The salary increases closely match the new agreements Clearfield County has reached with three of its six unions as well as its non-salaried employees.
