Dist. 3 alderman Brett Berquist said he “always has questions.”

“My decision on tonight’s proposal will be based on the information I gather and I haven’t gathered all that because there are other proposals from other alderman,” he said.

Dist. 2 alderman Mark Allen said he thought everyone deserved a pay raise. Questioned which departments had the most turnover, Allen said “public works.” Questioned whether the council should focus its attention on working to improve the situation in one department rather than provide a pay increase to every City employee, Allen said he wanted “equity” and everyone should be treated the same.
