Allen County Commisisoners and Raises

The other day I read in the Newspaper that Allen County workers are paid less than the average Midwest town employees are. The Allen County Commissioners are looking into raising their salaries. My question is are we trying to stay up with the Jones’s?

Salary is not the only thing one looks for in a position. Location is a big thing as well as climate. Property taxes, things to do, diversity of the economy, job security, benefits, cost of living and location to other points of interest is all things to consider. I have lived in a number of different locations and Fort Wayne is a nice place to raise a family. Unless workers working for Allen County are leaving, why increase salaries beyond inflation? Raising salaries will only put upward pressure on property taxes.
