FLORENCE — It’s hard to tell where the Pinal County Board of Supervisors stand with regard to spending. The five board members often espouse the virtues of fiscal restraint, especially considering the County is facing a general fund reserve that is hemorrhaging by millions of dollars each year.
But last Wednesday, the board approved increased salaries for employees in two departments – the Attorney’s Office and the Assessor’s Office.
County attorney Lando Voyles has been the recipient of much of the board’s fiscal generosity since he took office in January 2013. Almost immediately after Voyles began his term, the board approved a massive restructuring of his office, which cost in excess of $1 million.
