The Town of Culver has bumped the pay for a few of its employees in 2016, others may have to wait until 2017 to see their pay increased.

During last week’s Culver Town Council meeting, the Salary Ordinance that affects the 2016 fiscal year was considered on second reading. The Town Council approved the measure at their meeting earlier in December.

Passing the ordinance is required to set pay and salary levels for employees working in the town. Supervisors with the Town, including: Town Manager, Clerk, and Police Chief will receive a $1,500 raise in 2016.

Police officers will see $.50 per hour added to their paychecks – amounting to a 2-percent annual increase. The Street Department, it’s also about 2-percent, set at about a $.75 per hour increase. Part time Police will see a slightly smaller $.25 cent hourly increase.

Culver’s EMS and Fire Departments will remain flat for 2016, but the Town Council said they will consider increases for 2017.

The matter received little discussion last week, but was approved unanimously on second reading. The Culver Town Council also agreed to suspend the rules and adopt the measure on final reading for implementation in 2016.
