(JACKSON, Wyo.) – Employees of Teton County, Wyoming will likely get a pay raise next year. Commissioners set aside $300,000 in the budget to pay for the raises. Salaries have been frozen at the current rate for the past five years. Authorities say a 10 percent increase in sales tax revenues made pay raises a much more feasible option. The county has also cut or lost 30 employees since 2007.
