1.9 pecent raises on table for city government employees

City government employees will see an average 1.9.percent wage increase for 2014 – maybe.

Fort Wayne City Council members voted to approve salary ordinances Tuesday for city workers for next year, ordinances that include an average 1.9.percent increase in the base amount of pay. But the funding for that increase won't be decided until the council approves the budget next month, and that process could lower – or even eliminate – the amount of increase.

Council members voted 8-0 to approve the ordinances, with Marty Bender, R-at large, abstaining from the votes. Bender is a deputy police chief.
