Several City employees came before the Council at its meeting Monday evening, Jan. 23, to question their salary supplemental pay. The employees read inaccurate information in an area newspaper and Mayor Lee Posey was quick to correct the error, saying that he couldn’t control what was written in the publication. The crossing guards are classified as non-seasonal part-time employees and as such, are paid 50 percent of the amount of full-time employees. Posey was quick to clear up the misunderstanding.
