Bill's Newscast: Raises for Dewey-Humboldt Employees?

Dewey-Humboldt Town Council will hold a special meeting tomorrow

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, ADOT and Keep Arizona Beautiful are hitting the road

An Environmental Resources Roadshow will be held in at the Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce office on Pav Way from 11:30 to 1:30 Wednesday.  This roadshow will provide information on how residents can improve their local environment.  ADEQ will discuss successful recycling programs and how communities can benefit from certain grants.  ADOT will cover the volunteer process for adopting sections of state highways for litter cleanup and Keep Arizona Beautiful will discuss statewide litter prevention, recycling and beautification programs.  After the brief presentations, attendees can participate in a question and answer session.  There’s no charge for this event.  

The Dewey-Humboldt Town Council will hold a special meeting at 9 tomorrow morning to discuss employee compensation and health benefits

It has been proposed Town of Dewey-Humboldt employees receive a 4 percent raise, which includes Cost of Living adjustment and merit increases.  It has also been proposed a 6 thousand dollar deductible health plan be offered. However, Town Manager Yvonne Kimball has found the 26 hundred dollar deductible health plan, which has been available since at least 2010, offers the best value to employees.  Kimball is suggesting the Town implement a 3 percent raise and continue other benefits at a cost of more than 757 thousand dollars.  The special Council meeting will be held at Town Hall on Highway 69.
