Error Keeps City Officials From Pay Raise in Brewster County

BREWSTER COUNTY - Brewster County officials will not be getting a pay raise this year.

Every summer, the County Judge and the Commissioner's Court work on a budget and a five percent pay raise was put in the most recent one.

But under local government code, any pay raise for elected city officials must be published in a newspaper or some form of media outlet.

We're told former County Judge Kathy Killingsworth failed to publish the salary raises so the elected officials will have to fall back on last year's budget.

Only elected officials will be affected.
