HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) -- The Holland City Council approved a raise for almost 200 city employees at Wednesday’s special meeting. The Human Resources Department used a number of factors in determining the amount of the pay hike. The Consumer Price Index rate used by the State for annual inflation adjustments in property values, which is at 2.4 percent. A survey of comparable cities reported a 2013 non-union wage adjustment range of one to four percent and there has been no increase in base wages since 2008. A 2.4 percent wage adjustment was approved for all general city and Holland Board of Public Works non-union employees, to take effect July 1, 2013. Management is not included in the wage increase.
