Mayor says there's not enough money for raises

April 19, 2010 by Dominic Genetti

Willow Park city employees won't be getting a pay raise this fiscal year and they shouldn't expect more money by the time the next one ends too.

Mayor Ken Hawkins said that with the projects the city has planned in the coming years and a possible population boom in three to five years, there's just not enough to increase the salaries of city workers.

However, he assures that as the private sector of the city grows and improves, the public sector will follow.
