Washington County Salary Commission

In November of 2020, Washington County voters approved a change to the County Charter, establishing an independent salary commission. The volunteer Washington County Salary Commission consists of five human resources professionals who will determine the salaries for Washington County Board of Commissioners. At their business meeting on January 26, 2021, the Board considered a list of potential candidates and made Salary Commission appointments at that time.
