Like many towns, the City of Camdenton is working on ways to attract and retain employees, especially in the field of public safety. On Tuesday, the Camdenton Board of Aldermen took action to raise the starting pay of their employees. City Administrator Jeff Hooker said non-commissioned employees will receive an additional 75 cents an hour.

The fiscal impact of the pay scale revisions will be approximately $112-thousand-dollars for the remainder of the fiscal year. In other business on Tuesday, the Camdenton Board of Aldermen approved hiring Jennifer Simpson as the Community Service Official, Stacey Leach was promoted to Deputy City Clerk/Treasurer, and Ashleigh Pool was hired as the Administrative Assistant and Accounts Payable Clerk.
