Payroll for county tops $6 million

January 6, 2011

    At Tuesday’s meeting of the Adams County Commissioners, Commissioner Doug Bauman reported that the county’s payroll in 2010 came to more than $6 million, which, he said, makes the county “an economic driver” locally.
    However, the $6,049,283.51 total covers only those people paid by the county, not the two judges and the prosecutors.
    Both judges and the prosecutor each get more than $100,000 per year and there are several deputy prosecutors.
