Greene Co. Board Takes Umbrage With State Mandated Salary Increase For Sheriff’s Position

The Greene County Board recently dealt with the fallout from new public protection laws passed by the Illinois General Assembly. On April 19th, the General Assembly passed Public Act 102-0699 Article 15 requiring the salary of the county sheriff in a non-home rule county to not be less than 80% of the salary set for the local State’s Attorney. According to the bill, the state must furnish 2/3rds of the total annual salary from the Illinois Department of Revenue’s Personal Property Tax Replacement Fund or the state’s General Revenue Fund. The other 1/3rd of the salary must be covered by the county’s general funds.
