Zanesville city council meets in regular session Monday night and the talk was about pay raises for some city employees. Council chamber was crowded with police, fire and corrections officers, waiting to hear city council’s ruling on the ordinance pertaining to pay increases and benefits for the city’s employees. Before council was a resolution rejecting the state’s fact finding report…a report comprised of information on pay and benefit issues between the city of Zanesville and the Fraternal Order Of Police and Ohio Labor Council. Council rejected this report in a unanimous vote. After no one spoke from the packed council chambers, council again voted on the issue, but this time to accept term from a second resolution pertaining to wage increases. Council passed this second reading allowing for minimal pay and benefit increases, but not what the workers wanted. No council members wished to talk about the issue after the meeting, but they did point out that council does care about law enforcement and will continue to work to ensure satisfactory results.
