Major increases in the budget are personnel related, included a $300 raise for the town clerk and a $250 raise for the town treasurer. The raises, effective July 1, will bring the town clerk's salary to $1,500 and the town treasurer's salary to $1,250. The budget also includes an additional $1,000 to beautify the town.

SWEARING-IN -- Mayor Wayne Nickum and five recently elected members of the Town Council were sworn in by Glenn Dryden, Chief Deputy Clerk of the Fairfax County Circuit Court.

Council members include incumbents W. McCauley "Mac" Arnold and James C. Chesley, and new members Levon L. Buller, H. William "Bill" Warren and Donna Boyd Netschert. They will serve two-year terms beginning July 1. Certificates of appreciation were presented to outgoing council members Bob Achor, Diane Dygve and Patrick Layden.

SIGNS FOR SHOPS -- The council agreed to place three small signs above the street sign at Chapel Road and Main Street to direct visitors to the town's merchants and the fire station, which doubles as the town community hall.

"People need to know," Nickum said. "There are no signs basically on Main Street indicating that there are shops." The Clifton Merchants Association requested the signs to promote their businesses.
