About Bulletin 2019-001 *Revised

*Attached is a copy of the updated County Commissioners Association of Ohio Advisory Bulletin 2019-02 outlining the various compensation increases for county elected officials set forth in Senate Bill 296, which was passed by the General Assembly as a public benefits bill and took effect on December 27, 2018, and for county boards of elections members set forth in House Bill 166, which took effect October 17, 2019. The information in the CCAO's Advisory Bulletin has been reviewed by the Auditor of State's Office, which concurs with the substantive content.

This Bulletin makes note of the effect of the 2020 decennial census on county officials' compensation, as well as several points relating to compensation increases discussed in 2016 OAG 008, regarding changes in the compensation of elected officials which become effective during a current term in office.
