Baltimore County Council approves pay raises for county executive, council members, top official

September 7, 2022

Salaries for the Baltimore County executive, council members and the county’s head administrator will increase by roughly 10% after Baltimore County Council members approved a pay raise for future county councils and top county officials. The council also voted by a 5-2 margin to hike a cap on pension benefits for council members to 70% of their averaged final compensation, up from 60%. Although council members had considered removing the cap entirely, Democratic councilmen Julian Jones, Izzy Patoka and Tom Quirk, and Republicans David Marks and Wade Kach instead voted to raise the cap on pensions paid to council members 55 and older who served at least one term.
