The Jamesport City Council accepted an ordinance regarding employee salary at its meeting on Monday.
The ordinance set the salary for utility personnel Ray Bontrager at $15 per hour and Trent Brewer at $14 per hour. It also set City Clerk Shelley Page’s salary at $12.50 per hour and the assistant city clerk’s at $7.50 per hour.
Page swore in council members Geoff Eads, Gary Alexander, and Mayor Dana Urton. The officers stayed the same, with Eads as the street commissioner, Alexander as mayor pro-tem, Rob Murphy finance, and Freda Garner cemetery.
After a closed session, the council approved giving Brewer a $1 per hour raise after his 60-day probationary period. The pay for the assistant city clerk’s position was also increased to the Missouri state minimum wage of $8.60 per hour.
