The Kalamazoo City Commission has granted raises to four top city officials.

City Clerk Scott Borling, City Manager Jim Ritsema and Internal Auditor Ann Videtich will receive a salary increase at about the same rate city non-bargaining employees got this year. That amounts to a step up in pay grade, a one-percent salary increase and a onetime payment.

Appointments are first made by new city manager Jim Ritsema
