The county’s budget included 2 percent to 3 percent cost-of-living raises for its employees and 3 percent “incentive based” payments if they meet performance pay initiatives, County Judge Joel Baker said during budget meetings before adoption.
The county will discuss implementation of the Performance Pay Program, which is expected to set the eligibility criteria and requirements for the incentive pay. County officials are not eligible for an increase.
The court also will discuss three law enforcement programs with local communities. Law enforcement liaison contracts with Lindale and Chapel Hill school districts will be discussed.
Lindale ISD has entered into previous contracts with the county for security and policing provided by Constable Precinct 5. The court also will discuss a “community policing program” provided by constable Precinct 1 for apartment complexes within the precinct.
The court meets inside the Courthouse Annex Building, 200 E. Ferguson St. in Tyler.
