The salary increase comes after Hornell received a call from the Travis County Clerk’s Office to begin preparing for a new office in the Dallas suburb of Pearland.
Hornlees salary was reduced by $5,000 as a result of a contract that he signed in April of 2016.
Hornells salary will not be affected by the new office, Hornell said.

In a statement, Hornlidge said he was excited to take on this new role and the opportunity to be a judge in the Texas Probate Court.
“I am looking forward to taking this new challenge,” Hornell told the Texas News Service.
Hornella was previously a judge for Travis County.
In 2015, Hornleell served as the district attorney in the city of Fort Worth.
