A proposed raise for members of the Roane County Board of Equalization got cut in half.
On June 3, the budget committee voted 3-2 to increase the board’s pay from $100 to $150.
Commissioner Randy Ellis wasn’t happy about the increase and made a motion at the June 24 meeting against any increase.
“You’re basically saying you’re not going to give them anything?” Commissioner Bobby Collier asked.
“No increase,” Ellis replied.
