Councilman Ed Dimattio put forth an ordinance so that county council will hold any pay increases or merit pay raises until they receive the findings from the financial pay plan investigation committee at the end of June. He says county department heads will frequently request raises for certain individuals within their department.
He says sometimes the departments want to go over and above what the county’s personnel code calls for as far as salaries. There has not been an upgrade to the personnel code since 1985.
County Council hired Felice and Associates from Greensburg Pennsylvania to assess the appropriate payment amounts for county positions. Council will vote on this on Tuesday. The results will be finalized from Felice and Associates at the end of June.
