PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Utah County is considering salary hikes for elected officials.

Proposed raises would boost base pay for the sheriff and county commissioners by 15 percent. The county clerk, attorney, assessor, recorder and treasurer could get 12 percent increases.

The county's personnel office recommended those increases after it determined Utah County lagged behind others of comparable size in Utah and in 11 other states.

Commissioners will vote this month on the proposal. They could go with the recommendations, forgo any pay increases or opt for a lower than recommended raise.

If approved, it would be the first pay increase in three years for the county's elected officials.
