The Independence County Quorum Court retroactively increased elected officials salaries for 2022. Independence County Judge Robert Griffin said it would bring the elected officials salaries in line with an average of other Class 4 counties.

“Remember we have not given elected officials 7 percent of previous raises and that has contributed to this widening inequity,” Griffin wrote in an email to quorum court officials.
