If the taxable value of any existing county has been reduced below or raised above
the class and rank first assumed, the county legislative body of the county shall
designate the class to which the county has been reduced or raised, and the county
is in that class, and the salaries of county officers shall be adjusted on or before
January 1 next succeeding by the county legislative body, but in no event may the
salaries be reduced for the term for which the officers were elected and are qualified. The county legislative body in a newly created county shall at its first meeting
after the organization of the county, for the purpose of fixing salaries and compensation
of county officers, determine to which class the county belongs, and fix the salaries
for the first term of the officers accordingly.
