On a motion by Vice Mayor Teresa Barron, seconded by City Commissioner Frank Buie, the Chiefland City Commission gave City Manager Grady Hartzog Sr. a 6 percent salary increase.
Hartzog's salary goes from $65,000 to $68,900 as a result of the Jan. 14 vote. This followed the commission's rating him at 4.14 out of a possible 5.
Mayor Teal Pomeroy said this is the highest rating in the two years the commission has rated its city managers.
Hartzog first took office on Jan. 12, 2007.
