Wage Increases Approved For Bloomsdale City Employees

Several city of Bloomsdale employees will get pay raises in 2020.

The Bloomsdale Board of Aldermen voted during its July 9 meeting to boost the pay of four employees.

Initially, Ward 1 Alderman Brandon Shortt expressed reservations about tackling the subject without the full board present. Only he and and fellow Ward 1 representative Monica Rozier were present along with Mayor Paul Monia. Neither Ward 2 aldermen, Chris “Sappy” Basler or John Schweigert, were able to attend.

The board looks at raises for elected officials in March and at employee raises in July. …

City clerk Lynnette Randoll will get a 2.9 percent raise, from $17 an hour to $17.50. Wastewater superintendent Ron Berkbuegler gets a 3.7 percent increase [from $1,350 a month to $1,400]; while street superintendent John Lurk gets bumped 4 percent [from $1,250 a month to $1,300]; and Alfred Gielow, who oversees Sunset Park, 3.45 percent [from $14.50 to $15].
