UPPER MARLBORO—

The Prince George’s County Council and County Executive may be getting pay raises based on the recommendations of the Prince George’s County Compensation Review Board.

The County Council introduced a bill, based on the recommendations, at its meeting Tuesday, which would raise the salaries for council, the chairman, the vice chairman and the county executive.
The Compensation Review Board performed a study at the request of the County Council. Part of the review involved comparing the salaries of the administration within the county were compared to other counties across the state, according to the board’s report.
After completing its review, the board recommended the council and county executive get five percent raises on their income in fiscal year 2014 and fiscal year 2015 starting on the first Monday in December of this year. In fiscal years 2016 and 2017 they will receive an increase equal to the increase in the Consumer Price Index for the Washington-Baltimore area for September or $3,000, whichever is greater, according to the study the Compensation Review Board conducted.
County Councilmembers currently make $103,716 after receiving a raise last year. County Executive Rushern Baker III’s salary is $187,753 after receiving a raise last year. Read more >>> Prince George’s County Sentinel
