A nearly 3 percent increase in Seymour’s 2015 budget will allow city employees to be paid a little bit more next year.
But most of that pay raise will get eaten up by rising health insurance costs, Seymour Mayor Craig Luedeman said.
The city’s finance committee recently received its first look at the proposed 2015 budget of around $17.9 million. That budget includes $12.1 million in the general fund, a 2.7 percent increase over the current general fund budget of $11.8 million.
