It would have been nice if the reporter would have mentioned some facts about the Longevity pay. I am sure it has been mentioned before but a refresher would have been nice. How much money are we talking about? What is the rate that the employs receive.

If anyone knows the definition of "less than honest", it's TAX NEWELL.

Think things are bad now??? Wait till they get their hands on "HOME RULE". They will do what they want regardless of public opinion. Lets return to what is best for ALL citizens of the area, and not what each member wants for his elite campaign contributors and business buddies. Times are tough for us all, so stop campaigning and do your elected JOBS!!!

That's correct the mayor also said we needed users fee to stay afloat then they give out big pay raises.do away with all pay increases until users fee gone.

Mayor Newell, was right when he said: "The motion was an unnecessary blow to the morale of city employees. City council has REPEATEDLY said to city employees that the suspension of longevity was a temporary measure necessary because of the recession. To ELIMINATE it completely is being LESS THAN HONEST to the employees."

People needs to remember the LESS THAN HONEST part when voting for their city council member.

So they can't even figure out what they are voting on "how to shaft the little guy" - but when it comes to giving money away as an "incentive" boy they all glommed on that.
