Elkhart city employees may be seeing a pay raise soon.

The Elkhart City Council met Monday and discussed two proposed salary ordinances, which call for a salary adjustment for many civil staff as well as an appropriation to pay following a recently completed salary study.

The study, conducted by the firm of Waggoner, Irwin and Scheele (WIS), studied the city’s salaries in 2018 and 2019 and determined that many positions are underpaid in comparison with other public positions of similar duties.

Elkhart Mayor Rod Roberson recommends adjustments in pay following the study’s results.

Monday, the City Council passed the ordinances onto a second reading, which is set to occur on June 15.
