Lynchburg Considers Pay Raises Or Tax Cuts Following Budget Surplus

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA - After bids for a new Heritage High School came in under budget, Lynchburg officials are now figuring out what to do with the difference, totaling around $600,000.

Some of the options include extending the pay raise for city employees from 1.5% to 2%, or a one cent property tax cut.

Mayor Mike Gillette says a 2% pay raise was the original intent of this year's budget.

"Built into the budget was basically a locked in recommendation for a 1.5% compensation adjustment and built into it was the hope that we'd be able to manage a 2% compensation adjustment" he said.

A final decision will require a sign off from council, which will likely come when the budget is approved.
