Judge Bell Defended Pay Increase

Lamar County Judge Brandon Bell defended a ten percent pay increase to all Lamar County elected officials and a $3,500 raise to county employees. His comments came at this week’s commissioner’s meeting. Bell explained the 3.5% state-mandated cap on tax revenues, which requires a public vote on budgets that exceed the cap.
