Conway sued over city employee pay

Posted By on Thu, Apr 9, 2015 at 2:13 PM

A Conway police officer and a firefighter have filed a class action lawsuit against the city for allegedly breaching an agreement on use of a 2001 sales tax increase to improve city employee pay. The suit, filed by lawyer Tom Thrash, contends the city was obligated to continue step increases for years of increased experience but stopped them in 2009 an has instead spent the money on other expenses, including construction and parks.
