MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - The Missoula City Council budget committee has approved a raise for city workers that would start with a raise to $12 an hour all the way up to $15 an hour by 2018.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/1Hda0co ) that the committee voted 6 to 5 on a proposal to raise the minimum wage to $12 an hour.

The proposal would raise three city employee’s wages in 2016, costing the city just more than $2,000. If the city chooses to move toward full implementation of the raises, pay would increase to $13.50 an hour in 2017 and $15 an hour in 2018.

Wednesday’s actions do not bind the city to achieve the $15 goal in the future.

The city will move to adopt the 2016 budget at Monday night’s City Council meeting.
