Deputy Road Superintendent Tony Brown is in line to get a raise in the middle of the county’s fiscal year.
He currently makes $53,040.
By a 14-1 vote on Monday, the Roane County Commission approved a highway department request to increase his salary $3,000.
George Nelson was the only commissioner to vote against the resolution.
Commissioner Benny East made a motion to postpone the resolution for 30 days, but it failed by a 9-6 vote.
