Terre Haute City Council Votes Pay Raises For Police And Fire

The Terre Haute City Council and the mayor will spend the next few months finalizing the city budget for next year, but last night they did agree to a 2.5% pay raise for both policemen and firemen.      .

Mayor Duke Bennett explained the city has been told by the state that next year's raises for police and fire will be "fundable."

Bennett also said that within 3 to 4 years the city budget will be balanced and the tax anticipation warrant will be paid off.

The reason it is taking that long is due to a huge drop in assessed value.

The mayor also stated that they are looking at raises for all Terre Haute city workers.
