Most City of Wabash employees will receive a 2 percent pay increase under a budget that was reviewed Tuesday, Aug. 9, by the Wabash City Council.


City Hall’s receptionist is scheduled to receive more than 2 percent, Mayor Scott Long told the Council, largely because she has taken on additional responsibilities, including overseeing the city’s Human Resource items.


“She’s handling all our personnel issues right now,” Long told the Council. “She’s doing a great job.”


Clerk-Treasurer Wendy Frazier added, “She wears lots of hats. She fills in for everybody.”


During the meeting, the city’s department heads came in to answer various questions from Council members about the budget they proposed.
