MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Macon-Bibb County employees can expect a holiday bonus in December.
In a 8-1 vote, commissioners overrode Mayor Robert Reichert’s veto for the one-time $1,000 bonus.
Commissioner Scottie Shepherd was the one nay vote.
Commissioners say county employees needed some type of incentive. They say the bonus is a “thank you” and want employees to know they’re working on future raises.
$2.3 million is being allocated from the general fund for the bonuses.
