Project Outlines Christian County Public Salaries

People generally do not like to talk about how much money they make. That could explain why it took several weeks for the Kentucky New Era to obtain information about the salaries paid to local public officials working in Christian County. In almost every case locally, that information is not readily available. Most agencies do not list employee salaries on their websites, and a citizen who calls or walks into a public office to ask for the information often has to file an open records request. In some cases, they will be asked to explain why they want the information.
