Hampton City Council Approves Raise For New Employee

The Hampton City Council met in regular session Monday, October 9, with only two items on the agenda. New business consisted of the approval of raise for personnel who has been on the payroll for six months. It is typical for the city to give new employees a $.50 raise after six months. Ginger McCelland has been serving as a part time clerk.

The other item on the agenda, a skeet shooting exception ordinance, was tabled until next month for further study to clarify property issues and allow for discussion before approval. The mayor and Alderman Fricks plan to take a look at the location and check for any concerns before the next meeting.

The city council allows time for comments from the council and those attending. The mayor began with acknowledgment of the new police cruiser purchased having arrived and awaiting markings and stripping. Mayor Shirron also mentioned the new water meters are still being installed as time allows.
