Newburgh city department heads to get long-awaited pay raises

NEWBURGH – Department heads and other non-bargaining unit employees in the City of Newburgh are headed for their first pay raises in quite some time.

Interim City Manager Joseph Donat recommended a number of possibilities from a lump sum payment, two percent increase in pay, longevity pay, increase in vacation days and extra pay for emergency on-call time.

All members of the city council support the concept, Councilwoman Ramona Monteverde among them.

“I know that you guys really work hard and are dedicated to the city. I support this 100 percent,” Monteverde said.

Councilwoman Hillary Rayford said she would have preferred to have money for the increases included in the city’s 2019 budget, but one way or another, she said the city will find the money for those top employees.
