Council approved a one percent pay rate increase for all city positions and elected officials, minus the council members with a 4-1 vote. Councilman Jim Fritsch of District 3 voted against the motion for approval after sharing concerns about the additional burden on the city and its taxpayers considering the economic position and future unknowns brought about by COVID-19. This action will also increase hourly pay rates for seasonal workers.
