Page County board sets starting deputy wage

(Clarinda) -- Page County officials have agreed on a starting wage for county deputies. During its regular meeting Thursday, the Page County Board of Supervisors approved a starting wage of $25.30 an hour for deputies in the county sheriff's office. The decision followed a discussion between the board and Page County Sheriff Lyle Palmer. Previous talks had centered around a $27 an hour wage based on a 2,080-hour work year. But, Supervisor Chair Alan Armstrong says the county is moving to 2,088 hours in the upcoming fiscal year knocking down the hourly wage. Despite less call volume than area police departments due to their concentration, Palmer says one of his primary reasons for wanting a higher pay is that deputies often respond to calls on their own.

Page County seeking lease agreement with Heartland Family Services

(Clarinda) -- Page County officials have found what they think could be a solution to utilizing the maximum amount of space in the county's annex building. During its regular meeting earlier this week, the Page County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved to pursue a two-year lease agreement with Heartland Family Services, out of Omaha, for office space at the county's annex building. Currently, Supervisor Chuck Morris says the organization would require roughly 913 square feet. However, with the loss of the majority of the public health staff and potentially sharing the services with another county, Supervisor Chuck Morris says there could be more space available downstairs in the annex building than anticipated.

Page County continues discussions on starting salary for county deputies

(Clarinda) -- Page County officials continue to discuss where to set the starting salary for county deputies. During its regular meeting Tuesday, the county's board of supervisors and Page County Sheriff Lyle Palmer discussed a "fair" wage for deputies first entering the workforce, after the board made a proposal during budget discussions for fiscal year 2023 to not base deputy pay on a percentage of the sheriff's salary. Currently, the lowest-paid deputy makes just under $55,000 a year--67.5% of Palmer's $82,520 salary. However, Supervisor Chuck Morris says he still has concerns with tying the starting pay to a percentage due to the unpredictability of the "Back the Blue" Act.
