County workers get 3% pay raise

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

It’s been five long years, but county workers will see a 3 percent pay raise in the checks they receive on June 20.

The Levy County Commission unanimously ratified an agreement with Florida Public Employees Local 630 of Laborers' International Union of North America, AFL-CIO, during its Tuesday meeting that calls for the raise. The vote was 3-0 with Commissioners Danny Stevens (R-District 5) and Chad Johnson (R-District 2) absent from the meeting.  

At the same time, the commission said the money would extend to those employed by the county's constitutional officers — property appraiser, tax collector, clerk, sheriff and supervisor of elections. But the decision on when would be made by each constitutional officer. 

County workers have not had a pay raise since the 2006-07 fiscal year. The only remuneration since then has been in the form of a bonus in December 2012 and the county absorbing increases in health care premiums for several years.
