Pay raise for Del Norte County employees
DEL NORTE COUNTY- A pay increase has been approved for Del Norte County employees. County supervisors ratified an agreement that will provide nearly 300 county employees with a 5 percent cost-of-living pay increase. Starting in July of 2014, workers will see a 3 percent increase that will continue to rise over 3-years.
However county officials tell us that along with the pay increase, county employees will now have to start contributing to their retirement, which is something that the county had paid entirely.
