§ 180.58. Application and purpose of act--Legislative determination
A. Sections 180.58 through 180.68 of this title shall apply to all counties.
B. The purpose of Sections 180.58 through 180.68 of this title is to codify and revise the laws of the state relating to the salaries and wages of county officers and their deputies and employees, and to establish said salaries and wages by general law applicable throughout the state under a uniform schedule fixing such salaries and wages and future increases and reductions thereof upon the following bases:
1. The available revenues of the several counties out of which such salaries and wages may be paid;
2. The amount of services required to be performed;
3. The monetary value of such services in relation to that of nongovernmental services of similar nature in the areas wherein such services are performed; and
4. The relative amounts of services required of the various county officers, their deputies and employees upon investigation and full consideration of the applicable facts.
C. The Legislature has determined that the foregoing bases of such schedule gradations generally are cognate to the combination of the following factors:
1. The gross assessed valuation of all tangible taxable property of the county, hereinafter referred to as “service-ability”; and
2. The population of the county, hereinafter referred to as the “service-load”.
The application of said factors properly establishes a rational and relevant formula for uniformity of salaries and wages and of future increases and decreases thereof.
