FLORISSANT, MO (KTVI)-- The You Paid For It team went to Florissant to get answers about a pay plan that will give hefty raises to department heads.
Elliott Davis runs into a buzz saw from Florissant Councilman Timothy Jones who defends the pay deal.
At the heart of the controversy, some of the department heads sat on a special committee put together to study and recommend the increases for positions that included their own jobs. In essence, they played a role in helping set their salary. While directors are getting getting up to a 17 percent hike. Some lower level workers getting raises as low as 2 and 3 percent.
The recommendations got first round approval from the Florissant City Council but still needs a final vote.
A colorful scene in this You Paid For It when Councilman Jones tears in Elliott when he questions why higher up in line for the raises would be picked for the committee that recommended to the council how much they and others should be paid.
