HAYDEN - Officials at Hayden City Hall so far are planning for a 9 percent increase for next year's general fund and public works budget compared with the current fiscal year.
On Tuesday night, the city council conducted the final of three budget workshops.
Mayor Ron McIntire and the city council during the workshop instructed city staff to put a 3 percent across-the-board salary increase in place for next year for the city's 26 full-time employees.
"That way everyone gets something," McIntire said. The increase would cost the city $45,600. More. David Cole, Cda Press
