The Huron Township Board of Trustees approved pay raises for the supervisor, clerk, and treasurer, based on the recommendation from the Compensation Commission.

Each position will receive a 4.5% pay increase.

The board approved the raises during the Sept. 25 board meeting.

The three positions receiving the raises are full-time positions on the board.

All other officials and commissions will stay the same.

At the new rates, the supervisor will make an annual salary of $68,448, the clerk and treasurer will make $54,758, according to the commission.

According to the commission, the positions have not received pay increases since 2008.

The 2019 commission held meetings on May 1 and May 29 and was made up of Tim Bush, Todd Drysdale, Dan Dwyer, Bryan Polce, and Jack Richert.

Compensation commissions or committees are established to review the salaries, benefits and allowances of elected officials and are residents of the township.

The decision by the board to approve the increase was not unanimous. Treasurer Colleen Lazere was the only board member to vote against.
