Ellerby allegedly raised own pay

Gretchen Ellerby, the Lamar County commission’s former office manager, payroll clerk and human resources director, allegedly gave herself a $5000 per year pay increase without commission approval. Ellerby, who was suspended without pay August 18, has now been fired. Ellerby’s pay increase was reportedly discovered after a request from the Herald-Gazette for salary information for an upcoming story and open records requests filed by citizens in the recent dustup over property taxes.
