What Your Vote Is Worth

By William Browning

Amy McMinn grossed $84,816 last year acting as Yalobusha County’s Chancery Clerk.

McMinn also made $11,611 serving as the county’s law librarian and inventory clerk in 2006, bringing the total to $96,427 – making McMinn the highest paid employee of Yalobusha County. Of that total amount, taxpayers paid $46,900. The remaining $49,527 comes through filing fees and other duties’ fees.

The office of Circuit Clerk was worth $91,190 last year, as Daryl Burney is the county’s second highest paid employee. Taxpayers paid $62,737 of that amount, with the remaining amount also being filing fees paid by attorneys.

These two amounts fluctuate from year-to-year, anywhere from 10 to 15 percent. Both the Circuit Clerk and Chancery Clerk pay the employer and employee portion of payroll taxes and state retirement for their fee income.
