At last night’s City of Peshtigo’s City Council meeting the council received a recommendation from the finance committee to approve the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to payout essential worker employee bonuses of $1,500 to full-time employees, $1,000 to the 29-hour weekly employee, and $500 to part-time employees who have worked as of January 1, 2020, with the remainder of the funds to be allocated to the Water and Sewer. After a lengthy discussion the recommendation was voted down with a 3 to 2 vote.
