With a budget of 30 million pesos approved in a City Council session, the City Council of Mérida has announced that employee salaries will be increased by 12 to 40 percent, depending on the area and position, explained Mayor Renán Barrera Concha.

The mayor detailed that these salary increases are being implemented because employees have not received any raises since the start of the pandemic. These additional salary increments will begin with the lowest-earning employees, and the 12, 14, and 15 percent raises will be reflected starting from the next pay period.

He emphasized that this increase should have been implemented at the beginning of the year, but in this instance, they are advancing it as support to the workers’ economy. He also clarified that it shouldn’t be misinterpreted as an electoral move, considering that he is also an aspirant.

“The economic adjustments and budgetary savings that have been happening throughout the year have allowed us to create a fund that we will use to increase employees’ salaries. We are starting with those who earn the least and moving up,” he said.

To implement these increases, the municipality has decided to create a table to determine how the raises will be distributed since there are various factors to consider, including different job classifications.

In addition to benefits for employees, the City Council has also approved incentives for delinquent taxpayers in the city of Mérida through the Good End 2023 incentive program, which includes a 100 percent discount on property tax fines and surcharges.

It’s worth noting that this is the first time that the Mérida City Council will apply a 100 percent discount, as they previously worked with a 50 percent discount. They hope that, along with the culture of paying property tax among Mérida residents, this will be reflected in the annual revenue collection.
