Madison Mayor Looks at Employee Bonuses

Madison’s mayor wants to use about four-and-a-half-million-dollars of the city’s stimulus money for bonuses for most city workers.

Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway yesterday said the plan is to offer non-union city workers a 22-hundred-dollar bonus. The American Rescue Plan rules allow the stimulus money to be spent on ‘essential’ city workers, but that may not include the people who Rhodes-Conway wants to pay. Many city of Madison workers have spent the past year working from home, and that would make them ineligible for any of the city’s stimulus money.
