A recent compensation study will result in several employees of the Morehead Utility Plant Board getting pay increases.
General Manager Holly McGrath-Rosas says the MUPB hired the company Hanna Resources to examine its compensation scale. It found that the agency was paying many of its workers at below market value.
McGrath-Rosas says the Morehead Utility Plant Board will spend $67,000 in raises to 17 workers to get their salaries up to a fair market value. The agency will offer the pay hikes next year based on longevity of employment.
McGrath-Rosas says the MUPB needed to take action to keep its good employees—the agency lost six workers to higher-paying jobs last year.
