The City Council approved the raises Tuesday, which means raising minimum pay ranges an extra 6 percent for police officers, 11 percent for firefighters and 20 percent for other workers during the next couple of years.
The City Council also agreed to a 5 percent increase for the city's longest serving and highest paid workers. They will now be eligible for merit raises in January.
