Pay raises for city workers approved

January 29, 2016

During a special meeting Thursday, City Council approved pay raises and new healthcare benefits for all union and non-union city workers with the exception of the mayor. The raises were negotiated with the four unions representing city workers, firefighters and police. All city employees will receive a 3 percent raise retroactive to the beginning of the year, and 2.5 percent raises in each of the next two years.
