Daily Journal Corinth Bureau

CORINTH – Paychecks after Oct. 1 will include raises for city of Corinth employees after the Board of Aldermen voted Tuesday to adopt the fiscal year 2014 budget.

The raises of 3 percent or 30 cents per hour, whichever is greater, will not require an increase in Corinth’s ad valorem tax, the tax individuals pay on real property, personal property and vehicle licenses.

Employees making $10 per hour or less will receive raises of 30 cents per hour, and others will receive raises of 3 percent. However, the mayor and aldermen are not included in those raises.
