ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Most Atlanta city employees will get a 3.5 raise under a new budget approved by the Atlanta City Council.

A 1.5 percent increase was approved for firefighters and police.

The council on Monday approved the pay hikes and budget for the new year beginning July 1.

Workers say they deserve a pay raise, especially after city council members voted to give themselves a significant pay increase.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said he believes employees deserve the recognition.
