ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, JULY 13, 1965 16 Tabloid Pages VOL. 100 - NO. 51 Boost County Officer Pay New Schedules, Statewide, Began July 4 Practically a blanket pay boost for county officers and employees went into effect here July 4, due to a bill passed by the most recent Iowa legislature. The salary increases have been termed "the largest ever given at one time". Many county officers, considering the responsibility in their jobs, have been called under paid for some time. Increases here, like those all over the state, are on the basis of a table prepared by lawmakers. Largest yearly hike will go to County Attorney Gordon Winkel, whose new pay will be $7,000 per year - a jump of $2,800. Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst and County Engineer H. M. Smith will receive $2,000 more per year, giving the sheriff a $7,000 total, while the engineer's job now pays $12,000, tops for all county jobs. County Auditor Marc Moore, County Clerk Alma Pearson, County Treasurer Rosella Voigt and County Recorder Clara Walker all received $1,450 increases per year - and each will now receive $6,450 pay. Each of the county supervisors will get $3.50 more per day than in the past - $17.50 - which on the average will up their pay about $1,100, and an increase in mileage (which applies to all on the county payroll who receive it) will up the total another estimated $500 to $900 per year. Mileage has been increased from seven cents to 10 cents per mile. Average pay in the past for each of the five supervisors has run about $6,307 (including about $1,864 mileage per man). All county road employees received an increase of 20 cents per hour, with the average wage now about $1.90 per hour; weed commissioners got a 15 cent per hour increase; two couples serving as custodians at the county farm now get $50 more per month; and janitors at the courthouse received an increase of $50 per month, with the head janitor nowtoget$5,040peryear. At least three officers at the courthouse were not included in the new payroll set-up. County Assessor Leo Immerfall, who receives $6,300 plus about $700 mileage; School Supt. A. M. Quintard, who gets $7,012.50; and Health Nurse Joyce Hayden, listed at $3,000, plus about $700 mileage, were not included, either because they have their own separate budgets or because part of the pay is from the state. Deputies and clerks in the various offices also received increases, varying from 75 to 85 percent of toe increase received by toe county officer in most cases.
