ST. JOHN | The new year will be a little more prosperous for town employees.

The St. John Town Council on Thursday granted employees across-the-board 2 percent raises.

Elected officials received no raise. The annual pay for council President Mike Forbes will remain at $16,000, and council members will earn $14,000, according to the 2014 salary ordinance.

Among department heads, Town Manager Steve Kil will be paid $92,055 a year. Clerk-Treasurer Sherry Sury, as an elected official, does not get a raise and will remain at $76,850 a year. The director of public works tops out at $76,499.

The police chief’s salary will increase to $83,288, and the fire chief’s pay will rise to $73,871. Police officers will receive a $1,000-per-year uniform allowance. Firefighters will get $700 for uniforms. Top pay for a full-time firefighter/paramedic increases to $17.83 per hour.

Collectively, the raises amount to $52,000 a year, Kil said.

In other business, applications for town board and commission appointments will be accepted through Dec. 27. There are openings on the Plan Commission, the Board of Zoning Appeals, the Police Commission, the Park Board and the Sanitary District Board.

Applications are available in the town manager and clerk’s office and also on the town’s website.
