NEWPORT-A proposal to delay a pay increase for the members of the Cocke County Legislative Body failed during a meeting of the Finance Committee on Monday.

The CLB approved a resolution last month establishing a new formula that would set pay for members at 1 percent of the county's population according to the latest census, which would result in a $150 increase per month.

Committee member Clay Blazer proposed delaying the start of the new pay schedule until September 2014, after the next election.
