BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

For the first time in four years, Bainbridge city employees could see a pay raise.

Tuesday night, City Manager Chris Hobby gave city council members a preview of the proposed 2016 budget.

He projects ending the current year 2015 with a $250,000 surplus, thanks to last year's millage rate increase.

He added that the city has fewer employees with 141 compared to 185 a few years ago. 

“So we've got fewer people doing the same amount of work. So it's time to reward them a little bit I think,” said Hobby.

The 2016 budget draft will be available for public review on August 25th on the city's website and at City Hall.
