Jennings City Council approves pay raises

The Jennings City Council Tuesday night approved a new $6.8 million budget that includes 2 percent pay raises for city workers.

The mayor and city council are not included.

Mayor Terry Duhon told 7 News that he wished he could give the workers more, but the council has to work with the constraints of the budget.

The raises will cost the city about $100,000.
