Council starts budget discussions by approving raises
Wednesday, August 1, 2012
City employees may be poised to receive a salary increase in the next fiscal year as the Jefferson City Council begins moving through and discussing the mayor’s proposed fiscal year 2013 budget.
At the budget meeting Tuesday, council members discussed a proposed 1 percent cost of living increase for city employees, which Mayor Eric Struemph had proposed at a cost of $156,875 to the city.
But City Administrator Nathan Nickolaus said that proposal does not include any increase to employees in the airport and transit divisions, nor does it represent a true 1 percent increase.
