Long Overdue Pay Raise For Cullman Coroner On Governor Iveys Desk

A local Cullman County legislative bill (HB326) has quietly passed through the Alabama House and Senate.

Co-sponsored by Alabama District 12 Representative Corey Harbison and District 11 Representative Randall Shedd, the legislation will amend Section 45-22-60 of the Code of Alabama.

Delivered to the desk of Governor Kay Ivey on Thursday afternoon, HB326 will fast-forward the annual compensation of the Cullman County Coroner.

The compensation amount will climb from the antiquated, paltry wage of $12,700 per year to $25,000 per annum.

While still barely over a living wage, this pay raise finally acknowledges the importance and value of the 365/24/7 on-call responsibilities of the Coroner’s Office.

If signed by Governor Ivey as expected, the Coroner will be able to employ an Assistant Coroner and pay that individual out of the salary of the Coroners base compensation.

The new law will become effective on the first day of the third month following its passage and approval by the Governor.

Alabama District 4 Senator Paul Bussman weighs in on the importance and need for this amendment to the Code of Alabama:
