Vanderburgh Co. Considering Raise for Employees

The Vanderburgh County Council is working on next year’s budget with the hopes of giving county employees a raise.

Council President John Montrastelle said there are more than 700 county employees, and for the past three years none have received a raise after the budget has been completed.

If a raise cannot be given, Montrastelle said there may be another option.

“If we’re not able to do a raise, if we just do a bonus. There’s a lot of private companies that do bonuses. They’ve not been able to afford raises to give to employees for the year, but they give a year-end bonus. And I don’t know what that number is either,” said Montrastelle.

Before a raise can be considered, $4 million must be trimmed off the budget.
