QC Forms Oversight Committee for Clay County housing authority

Discussion concerning the operations of the Clay County Housing Department dominated Monday night's regular meeting of the quorum court. Re-visiting an issue which was first broached at the December gathering, the justices once-again heard from director RexAnn Galyean.

At the earlier meeting Galyean had requested a raise, based on researching pay of other directors who handle similar number of HUD housing units. She noted her salary was $28,000 and she felt $35,000 would be more appropriate for the workload. Galyean also indicated she has been doing the bulk of the office work for a number of years, relying only on a couple of part-time students for support.

“I presented this information in December, and I'm here asking again. I think I deserve a raise based on the pay of others handling similar loads,” she noted.

During the earlier meeting, Judge Mike Patterson had questioned the need for the raise, and the amount, as the quorum court is charged with overseeing the office which operates using federal funds.
