The Gonzales City Council has approved a measure to reduce the rate at which annual merit raises are given to city employees.

The ordinance brings city regulations governing pay raises in line with changes laid out in the 2011 budget.

The change reduced the annual merit raise from 5 percent per year to 2.283 percent.

Council members say the move allows the city to avoid cutting employee positions, as some other municipalities in the area have done.
