Mayor Chuck Shaheen says the results of the Carl Vinson Institute Pay Study show about 80% of city employees are underpaid.
Last year, the mayor and council ordered a pay study of city employees. It was the first one conducted since 1984.
The results show most of the people not earning what they deserve are minimum wage workers.
"It's time for us to get really involved and understand everything that's in that study and put together some kind of a plan on what we need to do to be sure that our employees are being paid for the job that they do," says Mike Daley, Warner Robins City Council.
On December 1st, the Carl Vinson Institute will be in Warner Robins to present their findings.
Mayor Chuck Shaheen says, he and council will find the funds to pay the city employees fairly, including benefits.
MACON, Ga - Authorities say a woman shot a burglary suspect at her home in Macon.
Police tell The Telegraph of Macon that the woman was returning to her home on Bayne Street around 7 p.m. Sunday night when she found a man gathering her belongings.
Police say the woman shot the suspect multiple times in the leg and foot.
Authorities say the man was taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia. His condition was not immediately available early Monday.
The Georgia Forestry Commission is holding back on issuing fire permits. The commission lifted a statewide fire ban on the first of the month, but dry weather and extreme drought conditions throughout Middle Georgia created tighter restrictions when it comes to issuing permits for residents to burn leaves, branches, and other debris.
"People are in such a rush to get things burned. We want you to take your time. We're going to have to be stricter this year on the permits," says Jenny Brunner, Chief Ranger.
The Georgia Department of Forestry says the fire ban ended even though 75% of the state is still in an extreme drought.
"We need a lot of patience right now. The burn ban is ending, but we're still in a drought so we're going to have to be kind of stingy with our permits until it rains a little bit," says Allen Dozier, Chief of Forest Protection.
