It seems that Christmas is coming early for the City of Bowman’s employees.
At an extremely short called meeting held yesterday afternoon at city hall.
The Bowman City Council approved a motion that would more than double what the city’s employees typically receive each year for their respective bonuses.
Bowman Mayor Pamela Johnson said it was a simple gesture the city could show their employees for all of their hard work.
She says the city is able to do this through a very good financial year.
“It’s a little bit more, and we are showing a bonus year, in at least the four years I have been mayor”, said Johnson. “Our net income is expected to come in close to one hundred thousand dollars this year.”
Typically each year, full time employees receive a two hundred dollar bonus and part time employees receive a one hundred dollar bonus.
However, this year, full time employees will receive a five hundred dollar bonus, while part time employees are looking at a two hundred and fifty dollar bonus.
