Municipal Pay Hike

Approval of salary increases for city staff is on the agenda for Monday’s meeting of the Yankton City Commission including a 7 percent pay hike for City Manager Amy Leon.

Mayor Nathan Johnson says that pay increase is in recognition of the leadership that Leon demonstrated on a number of important municipal projects in 2018.

Johnson says Leon’s salary has been lower than other city managers in South Dakota.

The Yankton City Commission meets Monday at 7 PM at the Career Technical Education Manufacturing Academy.
