An elected county official’s plan to give bonuses of $1,000 to $4,000 to eight employees who had worked on collecting back taxes was rejected by county officials.

Auditor Jan Richhart asked the Johnson County council for bonuses of $4,000 for two team leaders on the project and $1,000 for six other employees who helped. The money would have been a one-time payout from a fund that helps pay for salaries, office supplies and furniture in the auditor’s office.

Eight employees have worked on collecting taxes from residents who were listed as owning more than one homestead or a home owned by an individual as their primary residence, Richhart said.
