Fairlawn city council will vote today to approve a 3% pay raise for city employees.
Council members introduced the legislation earlier this month. City employees received their last pay raise in 2009.
"We're able to do this because we've been able to cut back on staffing levels," said Roth. "We've had several employees retire we're basically not filing those positions."
Roth says the labor agreements include full-time police, the service department and the part-time bargaining unit.
"We've had several adjustments through the years. With the cooperation with the union, we've been able to save the city some money and I believe this is a fair agreement for both sides.
Mayor Bill Roth says council will vote today to approve each of the five labor agreements. The raises will take into effect January 1st.
