Soon, the city of Dothan’s employees could be getting a much needed pay raise.
West says according to research, comparatively speaking to areas Dothan’s size, the city's employees are not making what they should.
City officials say they are having a harder time filling positions now, than they did five years ago.
The city's personnel department will decide whether to approve the two percent pay raise on Monday. From there, the commission will vote on it.
What West hopes is that the lowest paid employees will have their cost of living increased first, and to a level comparable to others in the same job classification. Then everyone else will get theirs.
The raise, if approved, will go into effect April 1.
