Council gives out raises

The City Council approved raises for the three employees the council hires to oversee the daily functioning of the city's government.

"We do not have performance issues at all," said Mayor John Inks before the council unanimously approved the raises on Tuesday for the city clerk, city attorney and city manager. "The city has enormous talent."

City Manager Dan Rich saw his salary go from $240,000 a year to $249,696, the result of a 2 percent cost of living adjustment (COLA) which all city staff got this year as well as a 2 percent merit increase. City Clerk Lorrie Brewer got the same merit and COLA pay raise rate, from $127,205 to $132,344.

City Attorney Jannie Quinn got a slightly higher merit increase of 3 percent, raising her pay from $215,000 to $225,879.
