Pekin Police will soon be taking home more money. A one-year contract with a three percent pay raise was approved at Thursday night’s special city council meeting.


The original agreement with the Pekin Police Benevolent Labor Committee was signed in 2009. It called for a reopener in its third year. Police asked for that reopener in March of 2012.


The new agreement will cost the city about $70,000 a year.


City Manager Joe Wuellner said the money hasn’t been factored into the budget yet.


The agreement also increases the officers contribution to the city for health insurance costs.
