MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (WTRF) – The City of Moundsville is looking into ways to raise salaries for city employees.

A number of ideas were thrown out at Thursday night’s city council meeting. Though no final decisions were made, council is recommending a 5% pay raise across the board, but that is subject to change.

A big concern centered around Moundsville’s relatively low salaries for police officers, and they would like to raise them soon so they don’t lose officers to other areas.

Mayor Sara Wood-Shaw is interested in conducting a salary study to see what positions are more underpaid relative to other positions.
