Recommended raises for employees for 2013 were approved by the Mid-Mo Ambulance District Board of Directors at the regular monthly meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 12.
Before the matter of raises was taken up by the board, Administrator Lee Kempf said he had budgeted 3.0 percent across the board for raises for this year. His recommendation was 3.0 percent for supervisors, ambulance personnel and the office staff. After discussion, a motion to that effect was approved unanimously.
Following that action, and with the administrator and office manager out of the room for the discussion and vote, the board approved a 3.0 percent raise for Office Manager and Board Secretary Brenda West along with a 2.0 percent employment contribution to the employer's contribution to her retirement.
