Somers approves raise for tax collector | Somer

SOMERS — Tax collector Lisa A. Madden is getting a raise, effective July 1, taking her salary to $78,000 from $68,959.

The additional $9,041, an increase of about 13%, will not affect the budget, said chief financial officer Michael Marinaccio. Funding for the increase is already available in the budget, either from the annual salary increase pool or from the tax department salaries themselves, he said.
