Decatur Ala. employees to get 1.5 percent raise


After several months of negations and hold-ups the Decatur City Council on Monday approved a 1.5 percent cost-of-living increase for city employees that will go into effect in January.

The Decatur Daily reports the raise was held up after the previous council earmarked $600,000 for pay increases, but failed to designate how $240,000 of those dollars would be spend, leaving the decision to the new council, which took office earlier this month on Nov. 6.

The controversial wage increase was approved 3-2. Council President Chuck Ard and members Paige Bibbee and Charles Kirby voted in favor the raise, while Kristi Huskey and Billy Jackson voted against it.
