I am well aware of the vast population of Salt Lake County and the large amount of responsibility on its employees. However, when a person accepts an employment position with the state or county, it should be understood that they are accepting a position of civil service. My frustration falls on civil servants being paid more than business executives in private industry. Should a County Surveyor be making nearly 200K? Should a Sheriff earn a higher salary than a Doctor? Do many of these positions require a college degree or just a healthy campain contribution? Could these same jobs be just as effecient at 75K? Why should a civil servant being paid with tax payer dollars earn four times the amount of the average tax payer? Could someone set me straight?
