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.
