An employee who continuously performs the duties of his position in an outstanding manner and whose work generally is both well above expectations and vital to the town's continued successful operations may be considered for a special pay increase of one step on the applicable salary range but not more than once in any fiscal year (July 1 thru June 30). Such increases must be recommended by the employee's department head to the town manager. The town manager shall report all special pay increases to the town council. The granting of a special increase of this type has no effect upon the employee's eligibility for normal grade pay increases as provided for in section 28-55.
