Constitutional Officers Budgets and Salaries

 

Constitutional Officers Budgets and Salaries Constitutional Officer Salaries

The salaries shown on this page are established by the General Assembly, and are the MINIMUM amounts that must be paid to the Constitutional Officers by the local government, and reimbursed by the Compensation Board. The salary shown on this page may NOT be the actual salary of a specific Constitutional Officer for a number of reasons:

o    Many local governments have authorized a salary supplement, paid from local funds, for the Constitutional Officer;

o    Constitutional Officers which serve more than one jurisdiction may receive a higher salary; and

o    The salary of an incumbent officer may not be reduced as a result of a decrease in the population of the jurisdiction served; a newly elected/appointed officer would, however, receive the reduced salary.

Information regarding the actual salary of a specific Constitutional Officer may be obtained from the Constitutional Officer or the local jurisdiction in which they serve.
