Pay raises approved for Shawnee County officials

More money… that’s what a handful of Shawnee County elected officials will be getting. Commissioners have approved pay raises for the county’s treasurer, clerk, sheriff and register of deeds…

County treasurer Larry Mah will go from just over $59,000 per year to more than $64,500. County Clerk Cyndi Beck will jump from about $67,500 to more than $73,000. Sheriff Herman Jones goes from $93,700 to $97,800 and Register of Deeds, Becky Nioce, will go from $60,800 to just over $62,400.

The raises were part of a 2015 study that found most Shawnee county employees were underpaid. Most county salaries were adjusted shortly after the study.
