CARSON : Council OKs Bonus for Workers, but No Raise

August 04, 1994|MARY GUTHRIE

Although no municipal employees will get a raise this year, the City Council has approved a one-time payment of $500 for each city worker.

Council members excluded themselves from the payment, which is funded from a surplus in last year's budget. The payment is in consideration for a 90-day extension of employee contracts.

Councilwoman Lorelie S. Olaes voted against the payment because of the city's financial problems and cuts in the 1994-95 budget.

Rather than spend the money on a onetime payment, she said she would favor spending about $147,000 to retain seven part-time workers scheduled to be laid off.

The item passed on a 4-1 vote.
