|Jury tables action on court reporter raises|
The Concordia Parish Police Jury tabled action Monday night on providing raises to three court reporters totaling $890 per month and received information on the goals and objectives of the parishwide drainage committee.
Jury President Melvin Ferrington said the raises for three court employees, as ordered by the parish's two judges, would dip into the Jury's dwindling general fund. He said he wished the raises had been requested last fall when the Jury was working on its 2011 fiscal budget.
However, District Attorney Brad Burget said he would work with the Jury to see if all of the raises could be paid out of the criminal court fund.
The judges instructed the Jury to provide raises to three employees -- one totaling $120 per month to be paid from the criminal court fund and two at $385 each per month to be paid from the general fund. The latter two employees will be raised $500 total per month with the Catahoula Parish Police Jury kicking the $115 for each employee.
The order also included annual pay raises of three percent for the employees.
Catahoula and Concordia parishes are part of the Seventh Judicial District. The cost per parish is based on population with Concordia ordered to pay 77 percent and Catahoula 23 percent.
