Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 510 - This act modifies provisions relating to the compensation of county officials.

BASE SALARY SCHEDULES FOR COUNTY OFFICIALS (Section 50.327)

Under current law, the salary schedule for a county sheriff shall be set as a base schedule according to law and the salary commission may increase the compensation of a county sheriff up to $6,000 greater than the salary schedule. This act repeals the provisions relating to the salary schedule for county sheriffs.

Additionally, this act repeals the provision that the salary commission of any third class county may amend the base schedules of county officials to include certain assessed valuation factors.

COMPENSATION OF COUNTY SHERIFFS (Section 57.317)

This act provides that the county sheriff in any first and second class county shall receive an annual salary equal to 80% computed by a salary schedule as provided in the act.

Additionally, this act provides that the county sheriff in any third or fourth class county shall receive an annual salary computed by a salary schedule as provided in the act. The salary schedule shall be based off a percentage of the salary of associate circuit judges.

Finally, this act provides that the county sheriff in any county other than a charter county shall not receive an annual compensation less than the compensation provided under this act.

This act is identical to HB 1132 (2021).
