The city council has approved one-time pay adjustments for four officials whose salaries are set by ordinance.
Council members unanimously approved an ordinance Monday authorizing one-time pay increases of $875 for City Administrator Jim Briggs, Finance Manager Mary Sprung, City Clerk Mary Trentmann and Darren Lamb, community and economic development director.
The council previously approved employee pay adjustments of $525 for clerical and field employees; $640 for police officers and dispatchers; and $875 for department supervisors.
The one-time adjustments were recommended after the finance department reported general fund revenues for last year at $100,000 over budget, and operating expenditures of $300,000 below what had been budgeted for last year, for a net of $400,000 “for the good.”
About $66,000 will go to pay adjustments to employees in general fund departments and another $14,250 for employees in solid waste, water and wastewater departments.
The balance of that amount will be placed in the city’s equipment replacement fund.
