The Tribune Star reports that Jon Marvel has admitted that his gross pay for this year will be $245,000.00. Unbelievable. Heck, that's nearly half of what the President of the United States earns annually. No wonder the county doesn't have any money!!

I bet if you look at most of the salaries of Sheriff's across the state you would be shocked. doesn't seem right sheriff to make 245,000 and a deputy makes 35,000 or so. does the sheriff work the road and put his life on the line everyday?

Channel 10 reported he makes $190,000. The $245K is probably with benefits. He is also personally profiting from cutting back on food for the inmates. Somehow that seems wrong. Granted, they don't need to eat lavishly, but they should be getting all of the daily nutritional requirements.

Regardless, the salaries seem out of balance between the sheriff and the deputies. I think most of our police / sheriff's are grossly underpaid for the amount of work they do.

How did the Vigo County Sheriff's salary get to this astronomical proportion? Marvel is the sheriff of Vigo County, Indiana - not a major metropolis.

Did you read the article on 11/07, in the Tribune Star? Not only is he receiving "meal money", but he is also receiving money for serving tax warrants, in addition to his salary. It's not like he personally was out there serving those tax warrants.

Why does Jake Compton have two County take home vehicles sitting in his driveway?

This city and county are going to hell in a handbasket. I love how the person who does the least work makes the most money.

John is doing a great job as Sheriff and he is not the only person to recieve this kind of salary. What about the past sheriff's? Oh by the way at least John is trying to help out and get a cap on this issue and maybe this will help out the County in other ways. Great Job Sheriff Marvel......

Yeah he is trying to do the right thing and cap his salary with less than a year to go on his term. Also the new contract and agreement probably won't be done until he is almost out of office. Yeah way to help the taxpayers JON.

Thank You

Because he's twice the lawman of anyone else. Hee Hee. He needs the car to carry his ego.

The short answer is because "he can."

Harris, before Marvel, and Jon have both tried to get a contract with the county. It is my understanding that the county council said no each time it was proposed.

Correct.
Marvel did request it at the begininng of his first term. But its nice to see somebody remembers it.
I guess if its not a big media event, no one remembers.
