Big changes, increased costs coming to Yates County District Attorney’s office

There are going to be some changes coming to the Yates County District Attorney’s Office.

During a special session late last week the Legislature approved increasing the salary for the first assistant DA and changing another position from part- to full-time.

Both were requested by DA Todd Casella.


He requested the change after his first assistant accepted a job in Ontario County, which brought significantly higher pay to the table.

Casella wants the new salary range to be $85,000 to $115,000, depending on experience and qualifications, with the estimated cost to fill the position — with fringe benefits — to be between $128,000 and $165,000, according to reporting by the Finger Lakes Times.

The new full-time position will have a total cost between $89,000 and $102,000.
