Four West Virginia counties likely won’t be giving raises to their elected officials following recommendations from the state Auditor’s Office.

Senate Bill 172, passed during this year’s legislative session, gave county governments the option to raise base rate salaries — up to 10% — for sheriffs, county clerks, circuit clerks, assessors, prosecuting attorneys and county commissioners. It’s the first time since 2014 that state code has been amended to allow for such pay increases.
