Joe Shaw said the new fiscal year is only the first or second time in his more than 20 years as Lancaster mayor that the city’s employees won’t receive across-the-board raises.

When considering such tough decisions and cuts that had to be made, Shaw said he’s pleased with the city’s 2009-10 budget.
