Montgomery County’s Compensation Committee, which every four years is charged with examining the salaries of certain County elected officials—including those of the County Executive and members of the County Council—is seeking public comment as it prepares to make salary recommendations that would apply for the next four-year term.

The seven-member committee also will make recommendations on the salaries of the County Sheriff and the State’s Attorney. The recommendations will not apply to incumbent office holders, but will apply to the winners of elections held in November 2014. The recommendations, if accepted by the Council, will go into effect on January 1, 2015, for the State’s Attorney and December 2, 2014, for the other positions.

The Council can accept or reject the recommendations made by the committee. Recommendations are due to the Council no later than Sept. 15 of this year.

County residents can send comments by e-mail to jean.arthur@montgomerycountymd.gov or by mail to Compensation Committee / Montgomery County Council / 100 Maryland Ave., 5th Floor / Rockville, MD 20850 / Attn: Jean Arthur. The deadline for comments is Aug. 9, 2013.

The Committee is seeking public comment on the following:
