Gaming the City of Columbia Budget
One look at the Columbia city budget deliberations tells you it’s an election year in the city.
Council recently pledged a two percent, across the board pay raise for all city employees in next year’s budget and even more for fire and police.
The firefighters received a 3.3 percent pay raise retroactive to January 1, 2013. Approximately 400 police officers and seventy 911 dispatchers will receive an additional 3.3 percent mid-year pay raise in January 2014.
History proves there is no better way to get city employees on the side of incumbent council members than to give them a pay raise in an election year.
