City OKs wage hikes
MONROE - A resolution approved by the city's Common Council Tuesday will boost the paychecks of about 30 department heads and non-union workers by a total of $87,200, or 5.45 percent compared to 2014. The increases are included in the 2015 budget, passed by the council in early November. The aggregate amount comes from a series of pay increases based on the city's new compensation plan of grades and steps, merit pay, reclassification of job titles and a cost of living increase (COLA).
