Pay raises ranging from $300 to $700 per employee are likely to be granted to Callaway County employees next year, Presiding Commissioner Gary Jungermann said Wednesday.
The county's anticipated 2013 general revenue is estimated at $7,436,425. It plans to spend $7,583,315 next year. To balance the budget, the county will use $146,890 from its reserve fund.
Jungermann said the county will budget an average pay hike of about $500 for each county employee but supervisors of each county office or department will apportion the pay raises based on merit.
