At this point, Supv. Brown opened floor to discussion to a question of increasing pay scale for Poll Workers. Current pay is $ 10.00/hr. for workers and $12.00/hr. for Chairperson. Brown inserted this discussion at this time to get a decision before we moved to payment of bills, i.e. if pay raise approved, we could include it in bills being presented for approval, tonight. Brown had consulted with MTA and learned that the Board can change non-salaried wages other than via the budget approval cycle. After some discussion, Coulter made a motion to increase wage for poll workers from $10.00/ hr. to $12.00/hr. and wage for Chairperson from $12.00/hr. to $15.00/hr. The wage for the Deputy Clerk will also be increased from $10.00/hr. to $15.00; all effective changes as of August 1, 2020. Motion seconded by and passed by voice vote.
