I always assumed it to be a nominal amount. But I got the impression from some posts that it is more than that. Does anyone know?

commissioner -$750 per month after training
commission chairman -$1050
commission vice-chairman $950

Wow... that's a little more than nominal!
I wonder how many hours are spent at these part-time Guess it helps if you set your own pay scale.

Not overpaid if they are representing their constituents.
They do alot more than just attend a monthly meeeting...

But, the key is having the right ones on the commission. THAT'S the problem we have.

We need more of the younger, professional sector on the commission. Not the retired sector that really doesn't have the initiative or investment in the community to be aggressive on improving and growing our local economy

ok lets see:
$750 x 4=3000
1050 x 1=1050
950 x 1=950
total taxpayer cost per month for this commission is approx $5000. and we just got finsihed paying out $1,540,000 in law suit settlements against Decatur County. and this commission has yet to publically make a statement how this want occur again??????

please people wake up and lets get back to the basics of open govt. you have the right as a taxpaying citizen to be heard and demand that your best interest and the entire countys best interest is always first. talk to your commissioner and express your concerns about issues that affect you and all of us. lets put people in these seats who genuinely want to serve you, the taxpaying person.

this is what the attorney Mr. Hatcher for the most recent case had to say per larry's bainbridgega website:

It is impossible to square the County's conduct with a County committed to honesty, high morals, and proper treatment of its employees and citizens.

It is a sad commentary on the state of affairs in Decatur County government that the men who saved lives and property are the ones who were punished, and those who lied to the EEOC and the Court, who destroyed evidence, who manufactured evidence after-the-fact, and who lied about the reasons they punished the firefighters have gone unpunished by the County.

I would like to say that the $1,540,000 in settlements against Decatur County in the three cases have been a wake-up call to the County to conduct its business with integrity and to treat employees with honesty, dignity, and respect.

Unfortunately, I do not think Decatur County has heeded the call.

The voters of decatur county can send the only wake-up call I believe the County's officials will understand and until they do so, will have to share the blame for the mistreatment of the County's citizens.

its all in black and white folks. no having to read between the lines or any grey matter here. blows my mind that apathy is so deep rooted that people just sit back and take it. but hey, its only your tax dollars footing the bill. apparently everybody must like the service they are getting for the money.

I was assured by a county employee that it didn't cost the county anything. All this money was paid by insurance.

Ask about the county attorney. He is paid a retainer that was obscene over 10 years ago (not sure about the amount these days) and on top of that gets to charge for any services he performs. I used to work for the county and wrote many letters for the department I worked with, however, all of the letters had to be approved by the county attorney. He would take my EXACT letter, transfer it to his own letterhead and charge the county for writing it. All the while, I'm being paid menial wages and receiving no credit for doing this...along with all of the other county employees.

I know that would burn me up, and I can imagine the county attorney's hourly charges. He is a professional, though and all lawyers are highly overpriced. So I'm not expecting the county attorney to be an exception to the rule.

why would a commissioner not want to answer a legitimate question about how tax payer money is being spent? did they not know enough about county business that they couldnt accurately answer? thats scary.
or is there something they are tyring to keep away from general public knowledge? even scarier.
how many insurance poilcies do you have that don't have a deductible? every one of mine does. its a pretty standard in the industry for most policies to have a deductible. is decatur county now considered an at risk insured because of these cliams? inquiring minds want to know...
