Commissioners recommend one-time bonus for most employees in 2014
Tippecanoe County employees will not be getting a raise in 2014.
But Commissioners are recommending the County Council approve a one-thousand dollar bonus for most full-time and regular part-time positions.
Dave Byers says that excludes those who make 70-thousand dollars or more.
He says this is a way to thank the employees for their hard work in 2013 without placing an ongoing burden on the General Fund.
Roughly 600 employees would be eligible for the bonus.
Auditor Jennifer Weston will present the Commissioners’ recommendation to the County Council at budget hearings later this summer, where a final decision will be made.
