BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Biloxi employees who have worked at the city for more than a year will get a larger pay raise than they expected.

Last week, the council adopted a budget with a 3 percent pay raise, or a minimum of $1,000. During a special meeting Tuesday, The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1QYMsOw) the council upped the raise to 4 percent for employees who have worked for Biloxi 6-15 years and 5 percent for those employed between 16-40 years.

The raise becomes effective in October.

Directors were given a 3 percent raise, although the council indicated the graduated raises also will be extended to the directors once the intention is advertised.
