ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - The Alexandria City Council has delayed approving a pay plan that could give city employees another raise. The pay study has been over a year in the works and will have to wait longer to be approved.

The council received the pay study results at 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 29 and said they need more than four hours before a meeting to be able to vote to allocate money. Also, Council President Catherine Davidson said the way the resolution was written on the agenda was improper and not the legal way to do it according to the charter.

Back in April, the council approved the first market-based pay increase for city employees for the first time in 14 years. All full-time classified employees received a 10 percent pay bump as the pay study was still being conducted. The council and Mayor Jeff Hall had said that once the results were finalized, more pay increases could be in line to be more consistent with surrounding cities.
