In the public input period of Tuesday night's Northampton County Board of Supervisors meeting, some citizens questioned staffing salaries as compared to other locations. References to the County Administrator's salary of $120,000 per year versus a statewide average of $57,000 per year, the Commonwealth Attorney's salary of $146,000 per year versus the Virginia average of $85,000 per year, and the director of the Economic Development Authority's salary of $107,000 versus a state average of $71,000 per year were all suggested as areas that could be cut and save tax increases. Final decisions about the 2015/16 budget are set for the meeting on March 13.
