Like most governing bodies, county boards set their own level of compensation. Unlike other governing bodies, increases in salary and per diem rates for county commissioners in counties other than Hennepin and Ramsey cannot take effect until January 1 of the following year.

For example, any increase in compensation for 2019 must be adopted in a resolution by the county board before the end of 2018. The resolution must state the new salary on an annual basis. Decreases in salary or per diem, however, may take effect at any time. SeeMinn. Stat. § 375.055.

For Hennepin County, see Minn. Stat. § 383B.021. For Ramsey County, see Ramsey County Home Rule Charter, § 2.01 (D) (links to outside website: pdf, 92k).
