New Richmond Council members approved a 2 percent raise for village employees during their Nov. 10 meeting.

Councilman Richard Hilt made the motion for council members to approve the raise after discussing the details.

Hilt said the finance committee decided a raise would be better than a bonus for employees.

“The committee discussed a bonus and that a better approach was the 2 percent raise,” Hilt said.

Hilt said the amount employees receive will be about the same as a bonus, however the money will come from more funds than just the general fund.

He said the increase in pay, rather than a one-time bonus, will also help employees with retirement.

“It was better for employees,” Hilt said.

Council members approved the raise for employees unanimously.

“Yes, I am for it,” Councilman Nick Wolf said.

New Richmond Mayor Ramona Carr said the raise will go into appropriations for next year and will be effective beginning in January.
