Boone Co. Employees Want Raises In Budget
(Burlington, Ky.) – County employees are urging the Boone County Fiscal Court to give them a pay raise in the 2012-2013 budget which could be approved Tuesday.
The Kentucky Enquirer reports the employees have gone to the fiscal court saying they have not received a raise in five years, only limited cost of living adjustments. They claim the fiscal court members received raises in recent years.
All fiscal court members – Judge-Executive Gary Moore and commissioners Charlie Kenner, Matt Dedden, and Charlie Walton – say they support a performance-based merit pay system. Most were against continuing cost of living increases.
The fiscal court meets at 5:30 p.m. at the Boone County Administration Building, 2950 Washington Street, Burlington, to consider adopting the new $104.2 million budget.
