Crothersville considering pay raises for town employees

Most Crothersville town employees could receive a bump in pay at the start of 2017.

The first reading of an ordinance to fix the salaries of appointed officials and employees of the town recently was unanimously passed by the town council. That includes setting pay ranges for all of those positions.

Council President Lenvel “Butch” Robinson suggested a $1-per-hour pay increase for two of the town’s full-time police officers and one town employee, while others will receive a 25-cent-per-hour increase.

The only ones who may not receive a pay increase are the clerk-treasurer and the five town council members.

Robinson and the clerk-treasurer received pay raises at the beginning of this year. The other four council members were elected to the board in November 2015 and began serving in January, and their pay was aligned with Robinson’s.

The second and final reading of the ordinance will be during the next monthly town council meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday. The ordinance has been publicized and also is available to view at Crothersville Town Hall during regular business hours.
