GATLINBURG, Tenn. (WVLT) -- City workers in Gatlinburg will be getting a raise next year. The city added a 2% cost of living adjustment for its employees to next year's budget before passing it.

That raise won't come a cost for Gatlinburg residents either. The new budget manages to provide the raises without increasing taxes.

The new budget goes into effect in January.
