The proposed increase was introduced during Monday night's council meeting.
Workers would get a 3.5 percent bump in pay starting January 1.
It would cost the city about $100,000 more a year
The council is also considering another pay raise -- for themselves.
The proposal calls for a one percent increase effective in 2014.
