Sheriff Greg Ward asked the Geneva County Commission to look at the salary structure across the board.
Since taking office in 1996, Sheriff Ward says he's been making $45,000 a year.
However during these twelve-years, everything from insurance to food costs has skyrocketed.
Sheriff Ward asked the county commission to go with the state legislature's plan to set a minimum salary schedule for constitutional officeholders.
The county commission promised Sheriff Ward that it'll look at the benefits and possible drawbacks of going with the state's salary plan.
