HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A $2.5 million budget surplus could mean raises for city of Huntington employees, Mayor Steve Williams said during Monday's City Council meeting.

That surplus existed from the fiscal year that ended in June.

However, Williams said the raises are not guaranteed because the money is largely spoken for and will go toward various projects.

Williams also said the city is right on pace in terms of budget for this fiscal year, and the city is bringing in more money than what is being spent.
