The people elected Kewaunee County sheriff and clerk of circuit courts in November will receive a salary that is 1.5 percent greater than Sheriff Matt Joski and Clerk of Courts Rebecca Deterville are receiving for 2018, under a proposal that goes to the Kewaunee County Board on Tuesday evening.
The two officials would then get increases of 1.5 percent annually during the four years of the coming term.
State law requires that salaries for elected public officials be set before nomination papers for the positions can be circulated. Papers for the Nov. 6 election can be circulated beginning April 15.
The resolution submitted by the county Personnel, Legislative & Advisory Committee sets the sheriff’s salary at $78,950 in 2019 ranging up to $82,556 in 2022. The clerk of courts would make $64,169 in 2019 and $67,101 by 2022.
The raises are similar to those already approved for other elected county officials in 2019 and 2020. The county clerk and treasurer are next up for election in November 2020.
The part-time county coroner would receive a $40 per-diem compensation for each call of up to an hour, with an additional $10 for each half-hour beyond the first hour, to a limit of $100 per day. Rory Groessl is the incumbent coroner.
The resolution is on the agenda for the County Board when it meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the County Administration Center, 810 Lincoln St., Kewaunee.
