Current law categorizes each county for purposes of establishing the salaries of elected county officials in the county. The statutory salary amounts are adjusted every 2 years for inflation and take effect for terms commencing after any change is made. The bill modifies the categories of 4 counties with the accompanying percentage increase in salary as follows:
- Grand county changes from category III-D to category III-B (20% increase);
- Rio Grande county changes from category IV-D to category IV-C (10% increase);
- Saguache county changes from category V-D to category V-B (20% increase); and
- Jackson county changes from category VI-D to category VI-C (10% increase).
