2011 COLA and Longevity Increases for County Officials

Print Print this article


Given the state of the Georgia and national economies, the General Assembly did not appropriate funds for a cost of living adjustment (COLA) for state employees for the upcoming fiscal year.  Since state law requires that minimum salaries for county officials be adjusted to match any COLA granted to state employees, sheriffs, probate judges, clerks of court, tax commissioners, magistrates, coroners and county commissioners will not be entitled to COLA adjustments for 2011. However, given this is an election year for some county officials, any county officials that successfully stand for reelection to their positions in the November general election will be entitled to 5 percent longevity increases. Longevity increases will be effective January 1.
