Council Members Considering Giving Up Pay For Batesburg-Leesville Town Employees

The Batesburg-Leesville town council will vote on whether or not to give up its own pay for county employees on Monday.

The council has proposed the idea to use the four-thousand-dollar yearly salaries to pay for a one-percent raise for the town's 53 full-time employees.

The eight council members' salaries, along with the mayor's six-thousand-dollar annual pay, would open up 38-thousand-dollars for the town budget.

 They are hoping to give town employees a raise without increasing taxes.
