The Madison County Board voted to freeze the pay of board members through 2020, but countywide office holders will see more money after the next election following a one year pay freeze.  The offices of county circuit clerk, coroner, auditor and recorder will pay $109,990.  The county board chairman will make $101,168 until November 30, 2017.

After that date, the salaries will increase by 2-percent until 2020.  Seven board members opposed the pay hike.  Also this week, board members voted to freeze the pay for members through 2020.  A Madison County Board member earns $14,495 per year.
