Yazoo County’s non-elected employees will be receiving a pay increase to offset the recent two percent payroll tax hike enacted by the federal government.
The total cost to the county is $57,000.
Cobie Collins, president of the Board of Supervisors, said the money will come from increased collections of back taxes on mobile homes in the county.
“We have the money, and I think we should do this,” Collins said. “Our county employees aren’t making much as it is, and we need to do what we can to keep our good employees.”
