State pay for County Treasurers and Auditors

Filed under: Bureaucracy, Economy, South Carolina, Taxes — NotforHire @ 8:44 am

I read today that the state has cut a pay supplement for county treasurers and auditors from $19,395 to $13,783 a year. Well, I guess I’m wondering why the state pays any part of salaries for county held offices. Shouldn’t counties pay for their own office’s salaries?

If the state were not paying any supplement, the savings would be $1,268,036, plus any overhead in the management of the program.
