(LAGRANGE) - The LaGrange County Council had some salary issues to decide on Tuesday before it can approve a 2018 county budget.

Some, like a clerk for the County Engineer and increases for the Auditor’s Chief Deputy and Deputy, were quickly adopted.

Others, like an increase for the Prosecutor’s Office Manager and a second position in the GIS Department, spurred some lengthy debate.

Prosecutor Greg Kenner tells the Council he wants to be able to keep good employees. ...... {LISTEN}.

In general, county employees will receive up to 3 percent increases, while most department heads will get that plus an extra $1,000. Three department heads: the Surveyor, Auditor and Maintenance Director, will get an extra $3,000.

The County will pick up the increased cost of health insurance for the 166 employees on the county policy.

The Council scheduled a special meeting for October 30th to formally adopt the budget and salary ordinance.
