Fort Bend County Commissioners and the County Judge voted themselves a pay raise this past week and it’s right on the heels of similar pay raises discussed in Montgomery County.
According to the August 9th regular session agenda, the proposed fiscal year 2017 salary for County Judge Hebert and the four County Commissioners—Andy Meyers, Richard Morrison, Grady Prestage and James Patterson will increase by 3.37%.
Judge Hebert’s annual salary is proposed to increase to $131,519. The County Judge also receives a $7200 supplement from the Fort Bend Juvenile Board. Yes—THAT board!
All four Commissioners and the County Judge also receive a $2400 supplement from the Fort Bend Drainage Board.
The salary of the four Commissioners is proposed to increase to $125,256.
The proposal calls for the Sheriff, County Attorney, Tax Assessor/ Collector, County Clerk, District Clerk, County Treasurer, all JP’s and all Constables to receive a 3.37% increase in their annual salary.
