The City Council of Jefferson City is set to discuss pay raises for most city employees once again, at its meeting on Tuesday. This comes after the council tabled the discussion on June 28.

The proposed raise, would increase most city employees pay, outside of Jefferson City Police and the city administrator.

The council has multiple options on the raise including, the current bill on the table, a 5% raise or the council could choose a different amount to raise pay by.

Jefferson City would use money from various city funds in order to budget the raise, which would impact over 300 employees.

According to council documents, the increase in pay would cost the city $1,416,820.21 on an annual basis.

Jefferson City Mayor Carrie Tergin previously stated that it's an important time to give employees a raise, as the state of Missouri, the city of Columbia and Cole County, have all approved pay raises for their employees to address inflation.

If passed, the raise would go into effect immediately.
