Sangamon Co. Board agrees to give back a portion of their salary


Members of the Sangamon County Board are reaching into their own pockets to help fill a nearly $3 million budget gap.

All 29 members have agreed to pay back 10% of their annual salary, which is around $500 per person. The Sangamon County Board has asked most county offices to get by with 10% less this year. The Sangamon County Sheriff's Office will only see a 5% cutback.
