WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — Warner Robins City Council voted Monday night to give a hazard pay bonus to all city employees.

According to Mayor Randy Toms, the bonuses will be indirectly funded by the $4 million they received through the CARES Act and distributed through a tiered system for sworn officers, then full-time employees, and then part-time employees.

Toms says each employee will get at least a $200 check by Thanksgiving as a way to thank their employees for working through the pandemic and also inject money into the local economy.
