Two county officials received a bump in their salaries in early January, with County Administrator Tim Hemstreet receiving a 3 percent pay hike and Commissioner of the Revenue Bob Wertz earning a one-time $8,500 increase.
With the raises, Mr. Hemstreet's salary comes in at $223,100 per year and Mr. Wertz will make $145,700 annually.
Mr. Hemstreet's raise is his first performance-based increase since coming to Loudoun County in December 2009.
Mr. Wertz has held his elected post since 1992. His office's responsibilities expanded recently when the county's assessment functions were moved within the revenue department.
