BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A new proposal would see some Erie County elected officials receive their first pay increase since 1996.

The resolution, which can be read here , would bump up the pay of the County Executive, the Sheriff and the County Comptroller.

The County Executive and Comptroller would both see a pay raise of about $15,000. The sheriff's salary would be increased by about $10,000. More salary details can be read within the resolution.

Not many attended the public hearing on Thursday night, but those who did, lent their support.
