Once again, Becker County commissioners failed to get a pay raise for next year, and once again they have no one to blame but themselves.


The board on Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution keeping their pay and per diem rates unchanged from this year.

Commissioners are paid $22,137 a year, plus a $50 per diem for committee meetings. The board chairman earns an extra $600 per year.
