Donaldsonville approves employee raises

DONALDSONVILLE - The Donaldsonville City Council has approved a plan that would give municipal employees a pay raise for the first time in five years.

However, councilmen altered a proposed plan by the city administration to do so, choosing a merit-based system rather than an across-the-board increase.

Finance Director Sandra Williams originally presented a plan that would give each employee a $1 per hour pay raise, for an annual cost of $74,530.

Councilman Charles Brown Sr. said during the week's council meeting he thought her proposal was not fair.

After discussion of the issue, council members chose to approve the suggested funding for raises.

Mayor Leroy Sullivan Sr. would use individual performance evaluations to determine raise amounts.
