Judge, prosecutor given raises


February 6, 2019

Green River’s city prosecutor and judge were awarded raises when their contracts were renewed by the Green River City Council Tuesday night.

Municipal Court Judge Jason Petri’s contract was approved, along with a $3,492 salary increase from $76,508 in fiscal year 2017-2018 to $80,000 in fiscal year 2018-2019.

City Prosecutor Bobby Pineda received a $1,693 raise in his contract renewal, with his salary increasing from $66,307 in fiscal year 2017-2018 to $68,000 in fiscal year 2018-2019. Both contracts are set to expire June 30, 2022.

According to Council documents, the city had to amend its resolution establishing employee wages and salaries within the city to reflect the changes for both contracts. While the change only impacts two positions, the entire resolution was amended and approved.

Speaking to the Council Tuesday night, Finance Director Chris Meats said the Council was asked to amend the entire resolution as a means of keeping a record of when changes are made to salary structures.

Meats also said the two employees are eligible for cost of living increases or holiday stipends should the Council decide to include them in those employee salary adjustments.
