With the end of the year looming, the Redwood County Board took action at its Dec. 12 meeting to establish the salaries for the elected officials in 2018.

The salaries reflect an increase similar to that of other employees for the coming year.

The salaries approved for 2018 include:

• Recorder $82,204 • Auditor-treasurer – $95,880

• Sheriff – $108,179

The county board did not approve a salary increase for the county attorney, as the position is currently classified as “appointed.”

In addition, the board approved its salary at $26,915, which does not include an increase over the amount paid in 2017.

The board also approved the per diem pay rate at $75 per day for commissioners for service on any board, committee or commission that has been approved as well as other service in the role of commissioner.
