Spencer, IA (KICD)–An agreement has been reached by the City of Spencer and Spencer Employees Association.
The three year pact calls for an annual cost of living increase of 2 percent in year one, 2.5 percent in year two, and 2.75 percent in year three according to City Manager Bob Fagen.

The last time the city went through collective bargaining they brought in a consultant to compare Spencer city salaries with other comparable cities.

Councilmember Ron Hanson said the deal is about as fair as it can be and should help retain and attract quality workers for the city.  The agreement takes effect on July 1st.
