Amherst town leaders could have some pay raises coming their way.
Paycheck increases were approved in a vote three to two at a board meeting last night.
The pay changes were proposed by council members who would be getting a salary bump from $25,500 to $35,000.
The Town Supervisor - who would be getting a pay raise from $75,000 to $105,000 - was against the proposal.
The Deputy Supervisor is expected to get a raise from $3000 to $4000, the Town Clerk can expect an increase from $65,000 to $82,000, the Highway Superintendent would get a bump from $97,000 to $100,000 and the Town Justice would see a raise from $96,700 to $102,000.
This money is part of the preliminary budges for 2017.
The public still has a chance to weigh in on the raises at a budget hearing in the future.
