CAMARILLO : Freeze on Salary Increases Lifted

Camarillo City Council members have lifted a freeze on salary increases for city employees, which was put into effect in June before the state budget was passed.

As a result, Camarillo's 110 city employees will receive an average 3.6% cost-of-living increase retroactive to July 1, city officials said.

The council voted in June to put the raises on hold until the city determined how much money it had to spend.

City officials had anticipated losing up to $2 million in state funding at that time but ended up with only a $175,000 cut, Assistant City Manager Larry Davis said.
