WILMINGTON -- The City of Wilmington will take a look at employee pay scales after the City Council Tuesday night voted to hire an outside firm to help. City firefighters, who continue to push for bigger raises, are happy about that. Also on Tuesday night's agenda, council discussed the recent rash of shootings in Wilmington. Several of them were fatal. Wilmington City Councilman Earl Sheridan said, "I am concerned, as are you and many residents, about the recent rash of shootings in the community."
