On Friday, Platte County Auditor Kevin Robinson released the 2016 Auditor's Recommended Budget for Platte County.
According to the budget overview summary page, Robinson proposes a 1.5% wage increase for all county employees.
In addition, his recommended budget calls for “a proportionate wage adjustment for all practicing attorneys” in the prosecutor’s office, without mentioning specific amounts. In a phone interview with The Landmark on Tuesday, Prosecutor Eric Zahnd said in the recommended budget nine attorneys in his office would each receive a $4,000 salary increase and one part-time attorney would receive a $2,000 increase.
