Mayor Mark McClure suggested the raise, saying the workers “do a good job for us and we need to help them out.”
Building manager Bill Cook echoes McClure's praise, especially in regards to the town's two full-time maintenance workers, David and Terry Clark. “They're honest and the community loves them,” Cook said of the brothers. “They have a work ethic that anybody would be proud of. I couldn't ask for two finer people.”
The town of Danville will also be hiring two part-time employees this summer to supplement its existing workforce. The additional workers will help cut weeds, mow grass, repair sidewalks and roads, and perform what Cook calls “general maintenance” for the town.
