JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)
The city council of Jefferson City met Monday night for a work session.
During the meeting, the discussion about the pay raise for city employees was once again tabled.
Jefferson City Mayor Carrie Tergin says a vote will most likely be taken next week during its regular city council meeting on July 5.
The council will discuss whether they want to offer the current bill on the table, the 5 percent raise, or they could choose a different amount to raise pay by.
Jefferson City Mayor Carrie Tergin said it is an important time to give employees a raise.
The raise would affect more than 300 city employees, and it comes at a time when inflation is up 8 percent.
The push for the raise comes after the state of Missouri, the city of Columbia and Cole County approved similar raises for their employees to address inflation.
