Committee Approves Council Raise

Members of a city committee have narrowly voted to approve a 1% pay raise for city councillors.

The corporate services committee voted 3-2 in favour of the raise.

Voting in favour were Mayor Fontana, as well as Councillors Judy Bryant and Harold Usher.

Councillors Bud Polhill and Joe Swan voted against.

The raise still has to be approved by full council.
