IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - City officials say Tiffin will abide by the Johnson County minimum wage ordinance.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports that (https://icp-c.com/1jx7DeM ) the issue was aired during a Nov. 10 public hearing but has not returned to meeting agendas since.

In September the county Board of Supervisors approved a proposal that raises the county’s minimum wage to $10.10 an hour by 2017 in three increments of 95 cents. Cities inside the county have the option of passing an ordinance exempting them from the county rule.

Councils in Oxford, Shueyville, Solon and Swisher have voted to keep their minimum wage at $7.25.

Council member Al Havens says he’s heard support for the increase and says he and his colleagues “kind of have to listen to the community as well as our own voices.”
