On Feb. 25, the EID Board voted 4 to 1 (Board member Alan Day voting no) to approve pay raises of 2 percent for staff each year for the next three years. Many employees will get 5 percent step increases on top of that. Look at the increase in your water and sewer bill to see what these pay raises are costing you. Yes, your rates are up and so employees are now are getting pay hikes.
When is the last time you received a raise in your salary? This EID Board is out of touch with ratepayers and our current economic environment. Instead of lavish raises, why not give ratepayers a rate reduction?
