Kaplan City Court employees get 2.5% raise

Kaplan City Court employees can expect bigger paychecks after a city council vote during their regular meeting last Tuesday.
City Judge Stanton Hardee had requested the raise for his employees in April 2017, but was denied due to lack of funds.
The change of tide came when the continued participation in the Vermilion Parish Economic Development District came up for discussion during the meeting. This participation costs the city $10,000 a year.
“I spoke with other entities and they are backing out because they just don’t have any money,” said Mayor Champagne.
