NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

The New Hanover County Commissioners approved a $327.2 million budget for the 2014-2015 fiscal year, including several pay raises suggested in a Evergreen Pay Study for New Hanover County. 

Vice Chairman Beth Dawson asked for the several positions, with recommended raises to be removed from the budget before final approval:

  1. county attorney
  2. county manager
  3. sheriff
  4. register of deeds

Ultimately, the budget passed with one vote against it from Vice Chairman Beth Dawson.

According to Dawson, three of the five positions she wanted to remove from the pay raises, are typically evaluated by the county. Because the evaluations are a county responsibility, she wanted to review the positions before agreeing to the raise.

The implementation of the Evergreen Pay Study will be effective July 1, 2014 and $825,013 of the 2014-2015 budget will account for staff raises.

After seeing the results of the study, employees within the Department of Social Services say they've circulated a petition for Universal Workers to be reconsidered for higher compensation.
