The first of two salary increases for Clear Lake city employees in 2019-2020 take effect Monday.

The Clear Lake City Council approved a 1.75 percent increase for appointed officers and employees starting July 1. A second increase of 1.75 percent will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2020.

That amounts to a 3.5 percent bump when both take effect but doesn’t include increases given to employees for work anniversaries, promotions or performance.

The highest-paid employee is City Administrator Scott Flory, whose annual salary will be $125,107. The next-highest salaries are Police Chief Pete Roth, $98,883; Public Works Director Joe Weigel, $94,931; and Police Captain Mike Colby Jr., $82,804.

The city offered a similar semi-annual raise structure last year.
