“After conducting reviews for council’s four appointees, it was concluded that all four appointees earned merit-based pay increases based on a variety of factors, including performance,” Mayor Betsy Price said. “Council also took into consideration that none of the appointed officials, including the city manager and city attorney, received pay increases since the end of 2017, despite the fact that the rest of the city’s workforce received increases in November 2018.”
