Lubbock City Council Puts Cap on Pay for Active Duty Employees

Lubbock City Council has capped the amount paid to "called-to-duty" city employees because of a tight budget year. On Thursday, the council approved to pay up to $25,000 a year for each employee.

The new ordinance to pay military city employees went into affect October of last year. That ordinance directs the city to pay differential pay while the city employee is serving our country.

For instance, if the employee makes $30,000 with the city, and only $20,000 with the military, the city will make up the difference up to $25,000.

So far, 9 city employees have been called to active duty this year.
