Charleston County Council gives $13,000 a year raise to administrator
Charleston County Council voted 8-1 tonight to give administrator Kurt Taylor a raise of nearly 8 percent.
Taylor stepped into the countyís top post eight months ago with an annual salary of $167,000. The raise increases his salary to $180,000.
County Council Chairman Teddie Pryor said Taylorís first several months on the job were considered a probationary period. Council is overwhelmingly satisfied with Taylorís performance, and the raise brings his salary to a more competitive level, Pryor said.
