Tulsa County payroll database: Search the Tulsa County payroll database, which includes 1,815 full-time employees' salaries as of 2012.
The Tulsa County Budget Board approved 2 percent raises Monday for most of the county's nearly 2,000 full- and part-time employees.
County Commissioner and Budget Board Chairman John Smaligo said the overwhelming majority of county employees have not received a pay increase in nearly four years.
The pay increase would be effective Dec. 1 of this year.
The proposed salary increases would not apply to Tulsa City-County Library, Tulsa Health Department or Expo Square employees.
"I have worked closely with Tom Gerard, our fiscal director, to come up with a modest pay increase for those who have not received salary increases," Smaligo said.
The commissioner said he would propose that employees whose salaries increased because of a promotion or reclassification be eligible for a raise. Those who have received performance-based pay increases in the past four years would not be eligible for the salary increases.
The pay increases would be paid out of the county's general fund and amount to no more than $975,000 annually, Smaligo said.
The pay increases would not apply to the county's eight elected officials, each of whom earns $100,387 a year.
