Congressional Art Competition is an annual
competition where the
artwork of high school
students is judged at the
level. In addition to an
overall district winner,
a winner is chosen from
each county and in
each of seven categories:
painting, drawing, col-
lage, print, mixed media,
computer generated art,
and photography. The
art from the overall winner of the competition
is displayed in the U.S.
Capitol for one year.

salary increase, according to the 2011 CPI rate.
The scale for employee salaries is set outside of the
budgeting process, but the schedule is included in the
city’s overall budget, which is reviewed and voted on
by the city council.
According to a March 2011 report by
The Anderson News on the city’s salary
schedule, city employees are classified
by various pay grades ranging from 11
The lowest grade on the city’s authorized position list is 17. Pay at those positions range from $20,069 to $32,111.
The highest pay grade currently
employed is 33, and includes City Clerk
Robbie Hume, Police Chief Tommy Burris and Public
Works Director Larry Hazlett. Their salary range at
grade 33 is $43,809 to $70,094.
A 2.96 percent salary increase, based on the current CPI, would raise salaries at the highest pay grade,
starting at $45,106 to $72,169.
Hume said the consumer price index has been as
low as 0.1 percent to 4.08 percent in 2007.
It remains to be seen, however, if city employees
will also receive an increase according to this year’s
cost of living index rate as the finance committee prepares next fiscal year’s budget.
The city council unanimously increased its
employees’ payroll by 1.5 percent in March 2011 for
the 2011-2012 fiscal year, according to Anderson News
Hume said the city’s finance committee plans to
meet later this week to finalize the 2012-2013 budget.
The first reading for the city’s budget will be at
the council’s May 14 meeting. The second reading will
be held on June 11.

asked York if she had been drinking, York denied it.
Anglin said she fired York on the spot after Anglin called police to administer a alcohol breath test,
which York failed.
York’s blood alcohol level was at .038, and told city
police that she took several medications around 11
a.m. that morning.
Anglin said she and her business partner plan to
file child endangerment charges against York with
the county attorney this week.
“Our kids’ safety is very important to us,” Anglin
said. “We took proper precautions in this matter.”
