OGDENSBURG — The City Council gave its support to Andrea L. Smith, who at the beginning of the year was promoted to permanent director of planning and development, with a wage increase.

The council voted Ms. Smith a $11,187 raise Monday night to bring her pay in line with the city’s standards for department heads.

“I would like to congratulate Andrea,” said Mayor William D. Nelson. “You’ve brought a lot of ideas forward and you’ve been very aggressive.”

Last year, while Ms. Smith served as interim planner, the council raised her salary to $44,250 from a $36,250 base.

The additional pay will come from the city’s Community Development fund, which recently received a $401,000 windfall from the auction of the former Community Resource Center property at 100 Ford St.
