A salary increase and plenty of praise were showered on County Attorney Mary McInerny at Tuesday’s County Council meeting held in Council Chambers.
Council voted 7-to-0 to approve minor adjustments to McInerny’s contract and to raise her annual salary from $128,000 to $135,000.
Council Vice Chair Robert Gibson explained that McInerny was hired in the middle of the county’s current fiscal year.
“We’ve had time to assess her great value to the county,” he said, adding that the adjustments also move to structure her contract in a manner more consistent with other county positions.
McInerny returned as the county’s top attorney after an eight-year hiatus.
“Mary, it’s good to have you back,” Councilor Jim West said. “Your accomplishments show what can take place when you have staff who are concerned with the needs of the community.”
Councilor Ken Milder told McInerny the community “is really benefiting from having you as its county attorney.”
McInerny returned at a time when the county has a large number of projects and issues in play. Council Chair Jim Hall thanked her for handling it all so well and jokingly told her, “We’ll try to keep the pressure on and give you even more opportunities to excel.”
