Hey "Phoenix" I guess you can't read.. this not for the CITY.. This is about the county, and unless you have worked their job you need to hold your words. Some of those employees work their A**es off and for no more then minimum wage.I have seen first hand the guys in maintenance out working in 100 degree heat sweating like crazy or working in freezing temps.. now I think they deserve a pay raise..As for failed infrastructures.. name them.. all county buildings are up and running and serving YOU.. county employees are some of the lowest paid. I remember a few yrs ago the commissioners gave them a whopping 10 cent raise.. what is that suppose to do, when gas just to get to their low wage jobs went up 70 cents.. Anyone who works deserves a decent wage.. WV is one of the lowest paying States. But, the people who have the jobs are thankful to have them, I just think the commissioners should reward them for the jobs they do. And not a few chosen ones ALL of them!!

For one thing Phoenix, get the facts right. The pay raise is NOT for CITY employees, they are talking about the COUNTY employees and it has been over 3 years for MOST of the people to get a pay raise. The county has great employees and they deserve the most they can get. Also to NORTH, Mr Six has done more good for this County than any other County Clerk! He brought it up to the 21st century! Great Job Mr. Six!

Pay raises are unwarranted. Pay legal bills and save the money for the next big infrastructure failure.City emplyees are some of the laziest rudest people I have ever had the misfortune to have to deal with. A pay cut would be more like it.
