Bigger bonuses coming for Oak Island employees

Posted: Updated:

OAK ISLAND, NC (WECT) – City workers in Oak Island are getting a $300 dollar Christmas bonus this year, but it comes at a hefty price, according to some.

Town leaders recently approved raising the proposed bonus up to $300 from the typical $200 bonus.

The initial proposal was to raise that bonus to a total of $500 but councilors voted that down.

Councilman Jeff Winecoff voted completely against the change, citing the town's financial problems as a reason.

In total, the extra $100 for town employees will add about $10,000 of total expenses on the town's budget.
