TRENTON >> Mercer County officials are set to receive fatter paychecks. 

The freeholders — all Democrats — will decide Feb. 11 if themselves, Mercer County Executive Brian Hughes and some of his directors, are deserving of 4-percent raises after giving the measure an initial approval last Thursday. All of the raises will be retroactive to Jan. 1, 2015.
