JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - The Jonesboro Finance and Administration Committee met Tuesday and a cost of living wage increase for some city officials was on the agenda.

The committee decided whether to send a 2% cost of living increase for the mayor, city clerk, city attorney, and city council members.

The text in the ordinance said the money needed for the increase is allocated in the 2020 budget.

Director of Communication for the city of Jonesboro Bill Campbell said ordinances to give the increase to the mayor, city clerk, and city attorney were moved to the full city council for their consideration. The cost of living increase for city council members did not advance.
