Elected officials in Jonesboro will NOT receive a pay raise at this time.
The Jonesboro City Council amended an ordinance last night that called for six-percent pay raises for elected officials in Jonesboro. The original ordinance called for all elected officials to receive a raise, but alderman made the change that took the city council out of consideration. They then voted on whether or not Jonesboro Mayor Harold Perrin, City Attorney Carol Duncan, and City Clerk Donna Jackson would receive a six percent raise. That was voted down 10 to one.
