Fulton employees granted 3 percent pay raise

By NEMS Daily Journal

FULTON – City employees will receive a 3 percent raise.
Mayor Paul Walker made the recommendation at a recent board meeting. The raise passed by a 3-2 vote with Aldermen Mike Nanney and Barry Childers voting against it.
Nanney and Childers said their vote has no reflection on the city employees or whether or not they deserve a raise. It was based strictly on economics and the uncertainty of the future with projections for 2011 being lower than 2010.
