The Will County Board on Thursday morning failed to approve proposed salary increases for board members and elected officials.

On the table was an increase from $23,000 to $24,500 for county board members in 2016, plus another hike to $24,000 in 2017.

Another proposal to give raises to three positions up for election this year — county clerk, treasurer and sheriff — would have increased the clerk and treasurer's pay from around $93,000 to $97,500 in 2016. In 2017, their pay would have gone up to $99,000.

Meanwhile, the proposal called for the sheriff to get a $10,000 raise from $110,000 to $120,000 after the November election.

All of the increases were effectively shot down Thursday morning when motions to approve the raises failed to be seconded during the county board meeting.
