BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – For just the second time in the past five years, Brunswick County employees will see an increase in their paychecks.
Tuesday night, county commissioners decided to give all employees a minimum of a three percent pay raise.
Some employees may receive as much as five percent based on their market value.
The change in pay rates comes after the county hired Evergreen Solutions to conduct a salary study last summer.
Evergreen was hired by the county under a $40,000 contract to conduct a compensation and benefit study, a job description analysis, and a performance appraisal for all county employees.
All part time and full time employees will be given a raise. County commissioners will be the only employees who do not get a raise in fiscal year 2013-2014.
This is only the second raise for county employees since 2008.
