A story about the Danville City Commission giving City Manager Ron Scott a raise that appeared in the Dec. 2-3 issue listed incorrect figures concerning Scott’s raise. This year, Scott is receiving a $115,000 salary plus a 10-percent ($11,500) contribution to a 457 deferred compensation plan, among other benefits. On Friday, the Danville City Commission approved a 3-percent raise for Scott following his performance evaluation, making his salary in 2018 $118,450, an increase of $3,450. That increase also affects the 10 percent paid into the deferred compensation plan, increasing it by $345 to $11,845. The city commission capped Scott’s total compensation package at $130,000.
