NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Norfolk city employees could be getting a pay raise.

City Manager Marcus Jones presented the proposal Tuesday to council in the 2016 budget.

The lowest paid city employees would get a three percent increase. The budget proposes raising the fee for car registration decals by $5. The additional revenue will fund Complete Street programs; improving bikeability and walkability options throughout the city.

The budget also suggests eliminating a $1 fee on water bills. Also included, $500,000 to explore improving high-speed internet for city services and Norfolk Public Schools.

Council is scheduled to vote on the budget in May.
