YORKVILLE — The Kendall County Board has approved a three-year deal with the six record clerks at the Sheriff’s Department.
The new contract provides raises of between $1,000 and $1,200 for the clerks for each of the next three years. The deal actually is retroactive to Dec. 1, 2012, the beginning of the current county fiscal year and the date when the last contract expired.
It will end Nov. 30, 2015, according to Leslie Johnson, the assistant state’s attorney who negotiates contracts for the county.
The new contract sets the base pay for a new record clerk hire at $23,000 a year. Right now, the six clerks make between $23,256 and $36,419 a year.
Like the other contracts approved within the past year, the record clerks agreed to some changes in their health insurance “to help the county obtain more agreeable quotes” for their coverage, Johnson said.
For agreeing to those changes, the employees will get a $500 lump sum payment.
This is the eighth contract the county has settled with various unions throughout the government within the last year.
