Supervisors to consider employee bonuses Tuesday

The Gloucester County Board of supervisors has a fairly lengthy agenda for its meeting Tuesday that will begin at 7 p.m. in the colonial courthouse. Among the items to be discussed is the possibility of giving county employees bonuses.

Gloucester Point district supervisor Bobby Crewe brought up the issue last month, following a 4-3 vote by supervisors to change the way the county’s school system is funded from lump sum to categorical.

During that meeting, Crewe said he would like to make a motion at a future meeting to give a $400 bonus to all Gloucester County employees as of Jan. 1, 2011. "They haven’t had a raise in three years and are due one also," he said at that meeting.
