I believe to resolve to problem created by the commissioners violating the pay scale that's in place, that they, the commissioners, could give up a portion of their own pay to compensate these employees that they seem to favor. They would then understand the need for a set pay scale and schedule.


Merit raises are actually the proper way, but we all know that 99.9% of Politicians would abuse it. Kind of like tenure in Public Education.
