A pay raise is in order for all Hamilton County employees. This after commissioners voted unanimously Wednesday to approve Mayor Jim Coppinger's fourth budget.
The 672.5 million dollar budget includes eight new officers at the county jail, a 2.5-percent raise for county employees, and almost 60-percent of the funds dedicated towards education.
All of this with no tax increase for Hamilton County residents.
