MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Va. – Montgomery County employees will have more spending money starting in July.
Most of the county's 380 full- and part-time employees will get at least a 2 percent pay raise starting July 1.
Monday night, the Montgomery County Board of Supervisors will vote to make it official.
Nine employees will receive a one-time, 2 percent bonus instead of a raise.
County leaders said the pay increase would put Montgomery County salaries on par with other Southwest Virginia communities. They also hope it helps them to attract and retain employees.
