OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- A proposed 104-point-five (M)million dollars budget calling for a two percent pay raise for all employees and merit increases of up to five percent has been submitted to the City Council.
The council took no action on the budget, which is down from the 105-point-seven (M)million dollars budget adopted last year.
No employee raises were given in fiscal 2005 and an across-the-board two percent cost-of-living increase was awarded the year before.
An anticipated reduction in grants and the proposed elimination of five vacant positions are expected to contribute to the reduced budget.
