  • Magistrates: Won’t be allowed pay increase

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — For the first time in at least 38 years, magistrates in Bullitt County may receive a pay increase.

    There is also additional expense allowance and a training fringe benefit for each of the four who qualify.

    The question is whether magistrates can budget for raises after the filing deadline had passed.
