(La Porte County IN) - Monetary compensation for employees will be the focus of a special La Porte County Council meeting this evening.
Last month, the council approved a six percent salary increase to police, medics, and other front-line workers and a five percent pay hike for all other employees. The special meeting was called after department heads expressed strong feelings that the increase is insufficient to stop high turnover for higher-paying jobs in surrounding counties.
The La Porte County Commissioners have approved a resolution supporting one-time bonuses of $4,000 to front-line workers and $2,000 to other employees.
The meeting is scheduled at 5 p.m. at the La Porte County Complex.
