Some Dickinson workers to get pay hikes
IRON MOUNTAIN — Five employees in the Dickinson County clerk-register of deeds office will receive upgrades in their classifications after a compensation review by MGT Consulting Group of Bay City.
The independent review was similar to one MGT conducted in 2020 for several court positions. Under a county policy, requests for such reviews are made by the department head, authorized by the county board and then submitted to a third party such as MGT to recommend a new classification.
The county board approved the reclassifications Monday.
The board also accepted a request from Treasurer Lorna Carey to review her department.
The new starting wage rates for the clerk’s office positions are:
≤ Chief deputy clerk, $19.592 per hour, an increase of $1.305 per hour.
≤ Chief deputy register of deeds, $19.562, an increase of $2.188.
≤ Circuit court clerk, $17.974, an increase of $1.322.
≤ Deputy clerk, $16.936, an increase of $0.564.
≤ Deputy register of deeds, $16.936, an increase of $0.564.
The board also approved on-call pay of $8 per day for the courthouse, grounds and park supervisor and the full-time employees in that department. The anticipated annual cost for all department employees when required to be on call is $2,920.
