Mary Richards, KSL NewsradioEven though their counterparts in the Jordan District took a lot of heat for it, school board members in the Alpine District are thinking about a raise.

The Alpine School Board may vote to double or triple its pay. Board member Guy Fugal says pay hasn't changed in his 15 years on the board.

"It's requiring more of our time. I think it's fair for board members to be compensated. The time that we spend there has tripled over the last few years," he said.

Board members make $250 a month right now, plus health insurance, a laptop and Internet service in their homes.

When the Jordan board voted to increase its pay many people disapproved, so board members tweaked the deal.
