OGDENSBURG The City Council gave its support to Andrea L. Smith, who at the beginning of the year was promoted to permanent director of planning and development, with a wage increase.
The council voted Ms. Smith a $11,187 raise Monday night to bring her pay in line with the citys standards for department heads.
I would like to congratulate Andrea, said Mayor William D. Nelson. Youve brought a lot of ideas forward and youve been very aggressive.
Last year, while Ms. Smith served as interim planner, the council raised her salary to $44,250 from a $36,250 base.
The additional pay will come from the citys Community Development fund, which recently received a $401,000 windfall from the auction of the former Community Resource Center property at 100 Ford St.
