Nearly all of the county board members make $50,079 a year. The board will consider a proposal to increase that pay by 2 percent annually in fiscal years 2017 and 2018. All the salary changes will take effect after the November election. The county's fiscal year starts on Dec. 1.

Other proposals call for the salaries of the board chairman, sheriff, treasurer, clerk and regional superintendent of schools to remain unchanged for two years. Then the salaries for those positions would increase by 2 percent a year in fiscal years 2017 and 2018.

The treasurer and clerk each make $139,835 a year. The sheriff is paid $161,573 annually. The county board chairman makes $126,450 a year.

DuPage County Regional Superintendent of Schools Darlene Ruscitti receives an annual salary of $109,464 from the state, according to the state board of education. DuPage County then pays her an additional $31,955 a year. The proposal the county board is considering would increase only the DuPage share of Ruscitti's salary.
