Lauderdale County employees get 3 percent raise

Lt. Debby Sumrall has worked at the Lauderdale County jail for almost four years, and said she's received a 3 percent raise from the supervisors every year.
But this year, it looked liked the county's 343 employees would get only a 2 percent raise.
On Monday night, however, the Lauderdale County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 to award 3 percent raises. The 3 percent raise will cost the county $186,849 though September 2002 $62,283 more than a 2 percent raise.
Board President Jimmie Smith said during budget hearings in October he didn't think the supervisors would be able to authorize a 3 percent raise.
Smith said more belt-tightening made the 3 percent raise possible.
District 5 Supervisor Ray Boswell agreed.
Sumrall said news of the increase is an early Christmas present.
