DANVILLE — A two-hour executive session Monday led Danville Village Council to propose wage increases and salaries for village employees for 2013.
The ordinance setting those wages and salaries was given a second reading Monday and will be voted on at the Dec. 3 meeting.
Council agreed to 5 percent pay raises for both the police chief and village administrator, and to 3 percent raises for the clerk and deputy clerk. Council also set the yearly wages for the Zoning Enforcement Officer at $3,300 and set hourly wages for the police sergeant ($15 per hour), patrolman ($12.50), maintenance A position ($12.45), maintenance B position ($12.83) and temporary or part-time employees ($8.00).
Council members also gave second readings to several ordinances and resolutions. An ordinance for temporary appropriations for 2013 is one step away from being approved, as are resolutions for contracts with Noel Alden for legal services and Bird & Bull for engineering services. A first reading was given on a resolution agreeing to send a representative to the Knox County Regional Planning Commission.
In committee reports, council heard that the Christmas street lights will go up this week and that a public hearing will be Dec. 3 for a conditional use application from Dan and Keith Butts for a four-wheeler/ motorcycle repair shop on Plum Street. It was also reported that Bob and Ruth Collier have decorated the park and that the Christmas Bazaar will not happen this year.
Village Administrator Robert Shipley reported the sewer, storm sewer and sidewalk projects are halfway completed, a new part was ordered for the salt spreader, the park and trail have been winterized and the security camera is back in place at the park.
