A Kootenai County commissioner is proposing a reorganization of county government that he says could save the county more than a million dollars per year, according to a story in the Coeur d'Alene Press.
Kootenai voters will decide on a measure in November to hire a county administrator for $125,000 as well as designate a number of elected county positions as becoming positions for hire. But the commissioner wants other changes, including reducing commissioners' salaries by one-half to $35,000 annually and making the commissioner's job part time.
The commissioner noted the board of trustees for North Idaho College donate their time for serving on that board.
