The first meeting of the group that will set salaries for Whatcom County elected officials is Wednesday, Jan. 23. The date has been changed since the original announcement.
The Commission on Salaries for Elected Officials meets from 4 to 6 p.m. in the board room of the Whatcom Transportation Authority, 4111 Bakerview Spur Road, Bellingham. It is open to the public.
The commission has until May 1 to set 2014-15 salaries for the county executive, council members, assessor, auditor, prosecuting attorney, sheriff and treasurer. The first meeting is organizational and will include a discussion of how the commission might schedule public comments.
Voters approved the commission in November 2011. The council had been setting salaries for itself and other elected officials.
