Weston Aldermen will meet at 5:00 p.m., Monday August 26 to try to finalize raises for all employees and for two public works employees who obtained special certifications last year.
The Aldermen agreed they would like to give a 1.15 percent raise to take effect in the pay period beginning August 25, and another 1.15 percent on January, but wanted to have the numbers plugged into the budget before taking action.
