Council approves raise for Illinois surveyor
from Chicago Tribune
The Lake County Council in Illinois approved a $30,000 raise for the surveyor now that he's a professional engineer. Surveyor Bill Emerson Jr., submitted a request for the $30,000 raise to the council because state law requires pay increases for professional certifications, such as obtaining the professional engineer license. Council President Ted Bilski, D-Hobart, said Emerson's licensure is a great service to Lake County taxpayers even though the $90,000 salary may seem like a lot of money to people.
