CdA Employees Want 3% Raises

Item: Cd'A wants 3% raises: But property taxes would not increase/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Four new police cars, two front loaders for the street department, and a cash reserve set aside for construction on the McEuen Field redevelopment project. Oh - and raises for 300-plus city employees. The city of Coeur d'Alene is proposing a $77.97 million budget for fiscal year 2011-2012 - slightly higher than this year's $77.91 million financial plan - which includes a number of capital purchases, project plans and 3 percent increases for all employees. However, the plan would not include a property tax increase.

Question: When were you last given a raise of at least 3 percent?
