Riverside County officials to get pay hikes

The Riverside County Board of Supervisors has approved pay raises to several elected officials.

The plan was approved 3-2 Tuesday, with board members Jeff Stone and Kevin Jeffries casting the dissenting votes, according to a report in The Press-Enterprise.

Sheriff Stan Sniff, who currently earns $223,166 annually, will have his salary bumped to approximately $268,000; District Attorney Paul Zellerbach’s pay will go from $223,166 a year to roughly $247,000, while Auditor-Controller Paul Angulo, Treasurer-Tax Collector Don Kent and Assessor/County Clerk/Recorder Larry Ward will each see their annual pay go from $165,727 to about $191,000, the report stated.

Board members gave tentative approval to the pay hikes in August.

Zellerbach and Ward are scheduled to step down in January, according to the report.
