Chesterfield County workers get one-time bonuses

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Some Chesterfield County workers will get their one-time bonus after the county announced a $28 million surplus.

The Board of Supervisors voted Wednesday afternoon. The bonus will be based on an employee's performance evaluation. School workers will not be considered because the school board is getting its own $9.5 million slice of the surplus.

"The school division is likely to utilize the return of the $9.5 million in savings to help close the current projected funding reduction of $27 million for the 2011-12 school year. In May, the School Board provided employees a one-time payment equivalent to 2 percent of their salary," according to Shawn Smith, spokesman for Chesterfield Schools.

It's then up to the school board to decide if it will give school workers a bonus from that.
