To date, commissioners have adjusted officials’ and employee salary requests downward to 3 and 5 percent increases, respectively, for a reduction in the proposed $6 597 million budget of more than $200,000. While commissioners are looking at ways of reducing the proposed county budget, they have been informed that County Auditor Bate Bond and five “assistant auditors" have been approved for larger pay increases An order approved Sept. 15 by District Court Judges Robert Pfeuf-fer and Charles Ramsay has approved a 30 percent salary increase for auditor Bate Bond and a 9.5 percent increase for the auditor’s assistants Under state law, auditors for counties with specified amounts of taxable valuation are appointed by the presiding district court judges. Recent legislation also empowers those judges to set auditor’s salaries The approved pay hike for Bond would give him a 1988 salary of $37,310, an increase of $8,610, and will make him one of the highest paid county officials, earning more in 1988 than the sheriff, tax assessor and county judge.
