The City states B&O taxes are down - that financially they can't afford raises for the employees - yet they can find the funds or obligate funds for a new police station and now $3 million for a failing country club - So I guess the question is - what is the true state of the City's finances ?

If they have the funds for these ventures - why aren't the employees receiving pay raises?

The elected leaders of Beckley need to take a really good look at ventures like this - indicating that Black Knight would be like Ogleby Park (1,650 Acres) is a bit extreme - isn't it?

You make excellent points so I called city hall. Was asked if I was aware that all city employees except the mayor have received pay supplements the past two years that total $1550 and health insurance costs a city employee only $10 per month for single coverage and dependent coverage costs only $50. The city pays something like $16,000 per year per employee with dependent health insurance coverage. Just saying, maybe you have posted a comment without the facts. Sounds like Beckley treats employees pretty good.

A "supplement" not a raise - a raise would be an increase in pay whereas a supplement is not something that they can rely on getting year after year. If they get a cost of living raise every year there would be a steady increase in their salaries - but a supplement just keeps them at the same base pay - In addition, I see you or City Hall did not address the B&O tax revenues - and maintaining the same health benefits that the employees were hire in at is a mute point.

Why don't you take the base pay rates for the various city workers (less overtime) and equate them to teachers pay - who only work 9 months and tell me how the City workers are being treated so good.

It is very simple, the home rule or 1% sales tax added on in Beckley has provided the money for some of this. Some of it is grant money for Police and Fire stations.
