Members Present: Ellie Chesebrough, Debby Heinz, BettyAnn McCallum
Non-Members: Mike Guzinski, Jeanne Lovett

 3% COLA vs. 1.5% + STEPS: Ellie met with Jeanne last week regarding where employees were on the grade/step chart. The Board had voted in favor of a 3% raise and no steps. Mike has recommended a 1.5% raise with steps. The chart shows that of the 58 employees that are eligible for raises, 14 are on step 10. Ellie will prepare a presentation for tonight’s Finance Committee meeting. If they are receptive to a 3% raise, Debby will attend the Selectmen’s meeting tomorrow. All budget recommendations must be in by June 6th. There will be a public hearing on the budget that day. All present agreed that the fairest approach to rewarding long-time employees was with longevity bonuses. Below is the comparison of union vs. non-union raises over the past few years.
