EYE ON CLALLAM: County to discuss elected officials’ salaries

Clallam County commissioners will discuss a resolution establishing salaries and benefits for elected officials at 9 a.m. Monday.

The work session will be in the commissioners’ board room (160) at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.
