The committee will do a second reading Thursday of an ordinance that, if passed, will give non-unionized township employees a 2 percent raise.

was approved by a vote of 4-1.

“This makes me nervous. It’s not the right time to do it,”Committeewoman Helen DelaCruz previously said. DelaCruz gave the lone vote in opposition.

The ordinance would give those employees in management and assistant management positions who are not a part of a bargaining union a raise.

“Almost all of them have not had a raise since 2008. They’re some very hardworking individuals. Most of their departments have been reduced where they’re having to work perhaps some times in an area that may have been otherwise filled in better economic times,” Committeeman Sean Sharkey previously said.

The ordinance would give those employees in management and assistant management positions who are not a part of a bargaining union a raise.

Non-unionized management positions include: Chief of Police, Chief Financial Officer, Director of Public Works, Director of Community Development, Municipal Clerk, Municipal Court Judge, Municipal Court Administrator, Deputy Municipal Court Administrator, Township Administrator, Tax Collector, Assistant Treasurer, Tax Assessor, Deputy Tax Assessor, Construction Code Official, Public Works Supervisors, Recreation Director, Zoning Officer, Network Administrator, Emergency Management Coordinator, Deputy Emergency Management Coordinator, Recycling Coordinator, Code Enforcement Officer permanent and part-time, Electrical Inspectors part-time, Municipal Court Attendant and Recycling Yard Attendant.

The Municipal Court Judge, Deputy Emergency Management Coordinator, Emergency Management Coordinator, Deputy Tax Assessor and township Committee will not be receiving increases at this time.

with the salary set at $48,000.

Based on the township's employee salary figures online, a 2 percent increase would cost the township approximately $9,119.54 alone for just the Chief of Police, Chief Financial Officer, Director of Public Works, Director of Community Development, Township Administrator and Recreation Director.

The meeting will begin at the Municipal Building at 7 p.m. Join us for live coverage.

An entry level position starts at 48,000, with golden health benefits and a pension. Need any help? I'll take it for less than 48,000.

They don't deserve crap ! They just raised our taxes as it is and we're supposed to pay extra for people to collect them! What they should do is get rid of some of these jobs that are worthless and figure out a way for better snow removal than "contractors" and hire more law inforcement to get the riff raff of the streets! But then again that might effect some relatives of the town officials!
