If a petition submitted to the city today gets 1,000 signatures, a hotel/motel tax fund could be used to give all hourly city employees a 3 percent pay raise.

The plan, submitted by Wayne Divelbiss, who will formally announce his candidacy for mayor in November, allocates 45 percent of the tax money to the raises. Currently, there is more than a million dollars in the fund. 35 percent of the money would go back into the Chamber of Commerce fund and the remaining 20 percent would fund the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame and the Oklahoma Movie Hall of Fame at the Roxy Theater.

“Compared to other cities in Oklahoma, our city’s employees are underpaid,” Divelbiss said this morning. “This measure would only cover the hourly employees, not the managers and administration.”

Uniform and non-uniform employees would benefit, from garbage collectors to police and firefighters, he said.

The city has a few days to object to some of the wording in the proposed measures, and then Divelbiss and his supporters can begin gathering signatures.
