The government announced on Tuesday, June 28, an increase in the index point for the salaries of civil servants in 3.5%. It also concerns municipal employees. Local communities are asking for state aid.

To clean the municipal swimming pool, welcome citizens or take care of students, the city of Beglesin Gironde, has 566 civil servants. All are employed by the city, and are about to see their salaries increase. Aurélien Ray maintains sports equipment, for 1,570 euros net per month. From July, he will receive 45 euros more. It’s still not enough compared to the inflation we’re currently experiencing“, believes the latter.

However, the salary increase will affect the municipal budget. The mayor (EELV)Clément Rossignol Puech, did the accounts: the city will pay an additional 560,000 euros each year. 560,000 euros, for example, is the budget for all of the municipality’s energy. (…) As we have undertaken not to increase taxes, not to increase municipal rates, we have to find other solutions“, he explains. State grants have declined for several years in a row. Revenues are reduced, and expenses soar with the price of energy. For the mayor, it is urgent to help the municipalities.
