Springfield City Council is expected to vote Monday night on pay raises for city workers.
If council approves, city employees would get a 4% pay raise.
Jordan Valley Park Superintendent Jeff Cumley says the pay hike is needed to attract and keep employees in a competitive labor market.
Some employees would also get a retention payment with money from the American Rescue Plan Act.
If you’re considering attending Monday night’s meeting, the city says capacity for the 6:30 p.m. event will be limited inside City Council chambers to ensure proper social distancing.
Overflow rooms will be opened.
Those wishing to speak to City Council on an item on the agenda may still sign up with the City Clerk prior to the bill being read.
Comments regarding bills accepting public comment that are submitted to City Clerk via email, will be provided to Council members at the dais and be reflected in the official meeting minutes.
Written comments for second reading bills will be provided to City Council.
