At the Columbia City Council Special Called meeting Thursday, June 16, 2016, the Council unananimously approved the second reading by City Attorney Marshall Loy, of the ordinance amending the Annual Budget for 2015-2016 Fiscal year. The vote was 5-0. Council members present were Craig Dean, Linda Waggener, Craig Lasley, Charles Grimsley, and Mark D. Harris.
Mayor Curtis Hardwick presided. Dr. Ron Rogers was the only council member absent.
Pay raises are being considered for FY 2016-2017
Also, the Council had a first reading, introduced by Council Member Craig Dean and read by City Attorney Marshall Loy, of the City of Columbia Annual for Fiscal Year July 1, 2016-June 30, 2017.
One item discussed was the subject of employee raises.
Mayor Curtis Hardwick gave three examples for the council to consider, saying the amounts are based on surveys of like-size city government salaries: 1) A 2% across the board raise 2) A 3% across the board raise 3) 75¢ per hour for all employees. There was discussion but no vote.
Of the three options proposed by the Mayor, the lowest overall cost one would be a 2% raise, the second highest overall raise would be the 3% raise, and the highest cost overall raise would be 75c per hour, for all employees.
For General City Government, the three options would mean a total estimate: 1) with 2% raise, $457,684.00; 2) With a 3% raise, $459,376.00; and with a 75c per hour raise, $460,454.00.
For the Police department, the total budget (--these figures are for all department costs with payroll being only about half the total--), the three options would mean a total budget estimate: 1) With 2% $1,106,658.00; with 3%, $1,113,153.00, and 3) With the 75c per hour option, $1,123,129.00.
Council Members Craig Dean and Charles Grimsley spoke in favor of the 2% raise, while Mark Harris and Craig Lasley favored the 75¢ per hour raise.
The Council will take final action on the raises at a Special Called Meeting at 5pmCT, Thursday, June 23, 2016, at City Hall, 116 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY.
