The last session of Legislature increased the maximum salary of the Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney from $6,000.00 to $9,000. 00 and established the office of Assistant Prosecutor at a salary of $3,000.00. The proposed budget increased the Prosecutor's salary to $7,500.00 and sets up $3,000.00 for an assistant in the event this position is filled. The above, items reflect the principal increases in the budget. Amounts were increased for equ iping, maintenance and repairs for the court house, purchase and repairs to record boo s and jail expenses. Nominal increases were provided to the various offices for deputies and clerks. The bud- get provides funds for all county operations including garbage dis- posal, county health unit, mental health, circuit court expense, ele- ction expense, county agent, civil defense and general relief. The County Court does not set the amount for the General Relief Fund as this is established by State Law and is $17,699.00 for the ensuing year - an increase of $3,912.00 from $13,787.00 in the TURN TO PAGE 8--A
