EL CENTRO — “Way underpaid” is how one Imperial County supervisor described his compensation when comparing it to what other California county supervisors make.

All five supervisors make almost $57,000 a year in base salary. They also receive health and life insurance, retirement benefits and an auto allowance, pushing the total to more than $5,000 a month or $60,000 a year.
