Battle over the budget in Avon.
The town board rejected a request form Town Clerk Sharon Knight for a higher salary. She asked that her pay be raised from $34,000 to $39,000…an increase of nearly 14%. Knight felt the raise was deserved for her 14 years service.
Some councilmembers agreed, but most did not, telling Knight that the 3% raise given to town employees would be sufficient. Knight was clearly upset, telling the board that she is careful using town money.
