Ketchikan, Alaska (KINY) The Ketchikan City Council voted to approve an over $9,000 raise for City manager Karl Amylon.
It represents a 5% increase from his current salary to just over $205,000 annually.
The original proposal would have given Amylon a raise to over $220,000.
City Council decided to defer a decision on hiring a consultant to negotiate a new lease for the Ketchikan Medical Center. They plan to meet with the hospital board in the next month to discuss the issue.
Ketchikan Mayor Bob Sivertsen said the Governor's budget will have impacts on the community, "More taxes at the local level, reductions in public safety and unreasonable cuts to the Alaska Marine Highway."
