Village Approves One-Time $500 Bonus to Employees

The Caledonia Finance Committee and Village Board Tuesday unanimously approved the one-time $500 bonus for non-represented employees.

Non-represented village employees will see a little extra in their pay this month after trustees unanimously approved a one-time $500 payment in lieu of raises.

until the contract with the fire department was settled. That contract was also approved Tuesday.

Village Administrator Mark Janiuk and Finance Director Larry Borchert worked together in determining the amount based on how much in the black the village can expect to be by the end of the year.

There are 44 employees who are not backed by a union, and Janiuk said this one-time payment softens the blow of asking them to contribute more to their health insurance and retirement.

"Police and fire are contributing more, too, but they are also getting raises," he noted. "With finances being tight, raises might not be the way to go so this helps offset those increased costs for workers who are not represented by a union."

a one time bonus until they feel like giving the next one!..If the village has left over money the should refund it to general taxpayers not to a few select govt employees...

These bonuses are going to the men and women that keep this village running. You want my 2 cents? I say give them all $2000.00 bonuses. That's about how much they lost last year when that s.o.b. in Madison took away all their rights!!!

Again, which rights do you speak of? And, will you make a check out to the town or the individuals for that amount? Knuckles, I'll bet you would have some great comments here if you would have graduated 7th grade! Keep plugging away, you'll get there.
