Mayor vetoes salary adjustment for city workers

LUMBERTON — The Lumberton Board of Aldermen will have to try again to reassess the 2011 budget after salary adjustments for city employees were vetoed by the mayor.

During a special-called meeting yesterday, Mayor Miriam Holder said the adjustments were not fair across the board.

Alderwoman Rebecca Hale said no one wanted to cut salaries but these are harsh budget times.

Hale said the issue will be addressed again at the next regular meeting set for Nov. 2.

Holder told The Hattiesburg American that she plans to hold another special-called meeting to revisit the salary adjustments.
