Loudon commissioners reject call to cut their pay

LOUDON, Tenn. (AP) -- Loudon County Commission members have voted 7-2 against cutting their pay.

According to The Knoxville News Sentinel, the vote Tuesday night came several months after the commission's budget committee first recommended that the commission cut members' pay in half. The proposed reduction from about $8,000 annually to about $4,000 annually was based on a comparison of what other counties pay members of their governing bodies.

Commissioner Sharon Yarborough made the motion to cut members' pay and Commissioner Don Miller seconded. A call for discussion was met with silence and the other seven members of the board present voted it down.
