DONALDSONVILLE - Full-time Donaldsonville city employees are getting their first pay raise in five years.

City officials said workers will receive a 3.5 percent across-the-board raise, with the remaining pay boosts awarded based on merit at Mayor Leroy Sullivan Sr.'s discretion.

Funding for the $74,530 in raises will come from three city operating funds: $53,667 from the Natural Gas Department, $19,343 from the general fund and $1,520 from the Sewer Department.

The move follows discussions in recent months over how to distribute a proposed pay increase.

The council backed the raises Tuesday as part of a budget amendment adopted during the council's first regular meeting of the year.
