NEW LONDON — Council adopted new pay ranges for the campground manager and the police chief at Monday’s meeting.

The rate for the manager will be between $10 to $15 an hour. Michelle Collins was chosen as manager for the season, starting at $10 an hour, which will rise to $11 after she has completed her probationary period of three months. The range for the police chief will be $22 to $25 an hour, which does not affect his current rate of $23.08.
