Whitehorse city council has approved a new bylaw that gives about 30 city staff a pay increase every year until the end of 2018.

The bylaw received second and third reading Monday night.

The changes work out to about a seven per cent salary increase over four years for management and a six per cent increase over the same period of time for management support staff.
