Greene County employees will receive a cost of living adjustment of three percent effective in October. The announcement on Thursday by the Greene County Commission marks the first salary adjustment for county staff in six years.

In a letter to employees, the commission noted that its fund balance is now at a level which allows for the pay raise. Credited was the advancement of its employee financial literacy goals and dedication and sacrifice of its workers.

With Greene County’s presiding commissioner not seeking reelection next fall, Circuit Clerk Steve Helms has announced his intentions to run for the vacancy. KSMU’s Scott Harvey reports.
