Osage Beach employees may be getting a long awaited pay increase if an ordinance can pass at an upcoming meeting.
The board voted 3 to 2 at their most recent special meeting to give city employees a 3% lump sum cost of living increase. Mayor Penny Lyons explains.
The increase would cost the city roughly $135,000. According to the city administrator, per the October sales report, the city is $213,000 ahead of revenue projections. Looking at the three to two vote, Aldermen Steve Kahrs and Kevin Rucker voted against the lump sum pay increase at the Thursday special meeting. Alderman Fred Catcott was absent.
