It is a matter of public record what any State or County Employee makes or made for compensation in any given year. All State employees' salaries are posted on the net. You shouldn't have to file a foia to learn our servants salaries. You should be able to walk in the courthouse and look for yourself. Furthermore, they should be posted somewhere also. The public will be surprised to see how high some of these salaries are, and how much overtime these employees have allegedly put in.

Will this also include Steve Tanner? Since he got a big raise but no one else in the department did. Would this be why no one is aloud overtime at the sheriff's office ?

The deputies didn't get a raise but the other county employees sure did. The maintenance staff is a joke and they have unlimited overtime. It will all come out

I'm waiting and watching patiently. I can't believe the Sheriff took a raise and didn't give the deputies one. I hope he gets voted out this time.

My information says that the Deputies did not get a raise for at least the past two years. However, they do not get a raise unless other county employees get an across the board raise. I do not think that the High Sheriff can give himself a raise since his salary is based on the class of county. I think Summers county is the same class, and records show that their salaries should be about 48k per year. The Sheriffs do get a percentage of taxes collected with a cap of 15k. I believe that this info is correct. Info also says that some maintenance workers packed in over 100k in 2009 and 2010. Anybody know?

working hard doing what?? I never hear them on the scanner. They always yell for them and none ever answer. So then the Sheriffs Dept is forced to clean it up. How is that working hard?
You say they are the ones that come and clean it up, but every time I have had a problem this isn't true, when or if the Sheriffs Deputys arrive they either dont do anything and are very rude or complain about you calling them and are very rude. I think most of them need a attitude adjustment they have those gun belts strapped to tight. I witnessed 7 or them trying to get one little woman in handcuffs into a car and they almost couldnt do it, maybe the money that they want for rasises needs to go into training and to teach them some manners! after all the tax payers are the ones suffering here....when we are the ones that are being "Protected" by these clowns

I agree, but its not only the present Sheriff, it is the whole department. Another instance that I can be a witness to is, I had a neighbor, she is a pill head I saw her so stoned out of her head she was trying to get into her truck, her boyfriend had to pick her up and place her in the drivers seat, once she pulled out she ran over the mailbox and proceeded to travel down the street, so I called 911 to report it, the 911 center told me they had relayed it to a County Sheriff I decided to follow her to tell them where she was headed until they found her or to the scene of the accident that i was sure would happen in her current state, she made it to crab orchard and was pulled over i told myself theres one less pill head driving on our roads and i went to walmart to do some shopping. When i returned home she was passed out in her yard <----THIS IS NO LIE I called 911 and asked to speak to the officer that was involved with pulling the certain woman over and left a number. The officer returned my call 3 hours later and told me to mind my own business he did his job, and he didnt have time to respond to every report he has on suspected drunk drivers. The next day i went to her house and played it off and asked why she got pulled over she told me she had a brake light out and showed me a warning ticket from where she got pulled over...now this is sad when these officers cant tell when a person is stoned out of her head and knew she had been reported just didnt want to deal with it.

I have heard that this is about some of the other offices and the amount of money they pay some employs and a lot more than ones who have been there for years and those employes are sons, grandsons, and daughters yes folks nepotism is alive and well at Raleigh county offices. As for the sheriff he cannot give himself a pay raise his salary is set by code and he is paid a percentage of delinquent taxes he collects so if he collected a lot of delinquent taxes then he gets more money by collecting money for the county I guess you would call that an incentive. I think they problem at the sheriffs office I'd the deputies are under a lot of stress because they run from one call to another. I have also heard that the investigation of the county commission involves some of the people they have hired. And some crooked deals their attorney has been involved with. There is an induvial that has been after the county commission for years but has been silent for the last several years. I think this is who got the gentleman aftert the county commission and that's how all this other dirty deals and nepotism came to light . We are going to get a court house Enema and it is hard to tell where they are going to put the nozzle.Some of their purchase deals and back room property deals are going to come to light and thank you to commissioner Toliver clean up the cess pool called the court house. Also make sure when the grandson fails a drug test on several test he should be fired or not allowed to drive a county vehicle. RALEIGH COUNTY will be much better this time next year.

Did they really allow someone to fail a drug test and continue to work? And he still drives a county vehicle?? Who was it? This makes me sick

If you guys wanted to see Raleigh county cleaned up you should've voted for Bob McComas he doesn't believe in all this pillhead crap! Too late now though just goes to show unless you're one of the good ole boys you're nothing in this town. It really is a pity.
