Split board backs raises
Members OK contract without knowing costs
DIXON – A divided Lee County Board on Tuesday approved a union contract that includes raises for employees, although officials admitted they hadn’t calculated the cost of the 3-year agreement.
In approving the new contract, board members gave up on a much-discussed plan for a countywide wage freeze.
By a 16-7 vote, the board approved the contract with the Teamsters, which represents 10 employees in the county clerk’s and treasurer’s offices. The contract, which already had been approved by the union, includes $1,000 raises in the first and third years of the contract and $750 in the second year.
