Bossier City council approves raise for employees


All Bossier City employees will soon see more money in their pay checks.

Tuesday city council approved a raise for all employees, including police officers and firefighters.  The ordinance passed today with a vote of six to zero.

In March employees will start receiving an additional $200 per month.  This is the first time all city employees, across the board received a raise since 2008.

Fire Chief Brad Zagone says, “They answer the call every time the call goes off and they do an awesome job and to reward them somehow with a pay raise is the best thing that can happen.”

When the city’s retirement system is paid off employees will receive an additional $200.  That could start as early as July.
