County managers get lump sum payments
Most St. Croix County administrators and managers won't get a salary raise in 2009. Instead 157 of them will each get a flat $520 lump sum.
The 2008 salary grid will carry over to 2009.
The lump sum payment will go to those who are at Step 7, the top of their pay grade. The 21 employees who aren't at the top of their pay grades will get their scheduled step increase.
