City Of Commerce Approves Salary Increases For Police And Fire Personnel


Commerce Mayor Wyman Williams says the City Council voted this week to provide salary increases for police and fire employees, using federal COVID-19 funding.  The council also voted to sell eight tax-delinquent properties and return them to the tax roll.  Houses can then be built on the vacant lots, improving the neighborhoods and generating additional tax revenue to the city.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
