The Crossville City Council tabled any action on a Classification and Compensation Plan presented by the City Manager that would have given raises to City employees, while also bringing police and fire employee salaries in line with other municipalities. The plan, first brought to the Council during a work session earlier this month was tabled until the January meeting at the suggestion of Councilmember Pamala Harris who wanted more time to study the financial impact. Councilmember Danny Wyatt was concerned about the end of year budget, saying that it looked like the budget would be around $900,000 upside down by the end of the year. The plan would require $150,000 for the remainder of the fiscal year and approximately $300,000 for a full year.
