County prevails in interest arbitration

County prevails in interest arbitration

A county client recently prevailed in interest arbitration based on its internal pattern and external standing among its comparator counties.  Key to this decision (attached below), was the county’s relatively small tax capacity.  It was one of the lower ranking counties in its comparator group in that area.  As such, the arbitrator determined that the county was not required to pay an average wage for the comparator group.
