TF County Sheriff Submits Proposed Budget
The Twin Falls County Sheriff’s proposed budget for the coming fiscal year is nearly 11 percent higher than the current budget. The Times News reports that some of that increase would go to wages. Capt. Tim Miller says the sheriff is asking for raises of up to three percent to help get salaries up to where they should be. Miller says some of the employees have not seen raises for seven years. The budget request is also asking for an increase in the gasoline budget to help cope with an estimated cost of $4 per gallon. The proposed budget is also expecting an increase in employee health insurance rates along with vehicle maintenance and water rates for the jail.
