Santa Rosa pay raises for county employees
SANTA ROSA COUNTY -- The Santa Rosa County commission is meeting tonight to discuss raising property taxes to fund a pay raise for county employees.
The sheriff's office put out this youtube video last week, to explain why the raises are important and ask for the community's support.
Dozens of deputies have left the sheriff's office in the past few years, saying they weren't getting paid enough.
The last time an employee in the sheriff's office got a raise was in 2007.
And none of county's employees have had their salary increased in more than four years.
Tonight's meeting is open to the public. It starts at 6 pm at the Administration Building in Milton.
