San Miguel County Attorney Jesus Lopez has entered another four-year agreement with the county.
Last week, the County Commission unanimously voted for a new contract with Lopez, a former district attorney. He will get $67,500 each year, up from $60,000 in the previous four-year agreement.
County Commission Chairman David Salazar praised Lopez’s service.
“I appreciate that you’re really honest about what you have to say. That’s what you’re hired to do. You are to protect the county,” the chairman said.
