Knightstown Council May Give Pay Raises Final OK at Tonight's Meeting
December 19, 2007 - When it meets tonight, the Knightstown Town Council is expected to give further consideration to a salary ordinance that will provide all town employees with pay raises of at least four-percent.
The council unanimously approved the salary ordinance on first reading at its November 21 meeting. Clerk-Treasurer Judy Haines told The Banner yesterday that votes on second and third readings could come at tonight's regular monthly meeting.
While the proposed salary ordinance would give most employees a four-percent raise, Linda Glenn, the town's utility bookkeeper and assistant office manager would get a 13-percent raise, giving her a salary of $34,000. The ordinance would also raise Haines' salary from $20,037 to $32,000, an increase of nearly 60 percent.
One issue Haines said the council will not be address at tonight's meeting is whether to raise the town's water rates and fees. At a special meeting earlier this month, an Indianapolis accounting firm presented a study that proposed a 47.8 percent increase in rates and service charges would be needed to cover the water utility's current and anticipated future expenses.
"This present town board did not want to do anything the new town board would have to live with," Haines said. At the first of the year, three incumbent Republican council members representing Wards One, Three and Four will be replaced by the independent candidates who defeated them in last fall's election.
