A pay cut is in store for commissioners in the DuPage County forest preserve district — down to $53,500 for the part-time position.

Commissioners recently culminated months of discussion about cutting their $56,912 salaries to equal the pay for DuPage County Board members — $50,079 — but instead approved the smaller, 6 percent reduction.

The required 1,000-hour annual commitment translates to $53.50 per hour and about 19 hours a week.
