A relatively light agenda for the monthly Door County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday will focus on how board members will prefer to be paid for their service. Currently, all representatives are getting a per diem of $50 for the first meeting hour and then $25 per hour for any additional hours including committee meetings. Salary is being proposed at a flat $6,500 per year or the equivalent of $542 a month. Door County Administrator Ken Pabich explains the two options that are being discussed.
Pabich says he expects a decision to be made by the August meeting so anyone taking out papers in November will know how they will be compensated if they are elected. He adds from an administrative standpoint it would be ultimately easier to do a salary rather than a per diem but neither would be overly burdensome.
