Council Votes on 2013 Performance Pay Raise for Haga

It appears as if the Grand Forks city council has come to a decision on the future salary of Community and Government Relations Officer Pete Haga.

It appears as if the Grand Forks city council has come to a decision on the future salary of Community and Government Relations Officer Pete Haga.

Haga received an almost $25,000 raise this year, which didn't sit well with some council members and citizens. Now council members have questioned whether he should be eligible for another raise next year. The council was almost split in half this evening. Terry Bjerke made a motion for Haga's salary for 2013 be the same for 2012, meaning he would not receive a pay for performance raise in 2013, but it failed to amend in a vote three to four. Other discussions on longevity pay continued tonight, and the council will hear recommendations from a consultant at some time in January.
