JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

The Jacksonville Port Authority board of directors has approved a 5-percent pay raise and $50,000 bonus for Paul Anderson, its chief executive officer.

His salary will go to $336,000 starting next month.

The raise was approved after the board did a two-year performance review of Anderson, who was hired in January 2011.

Some members of the City Council's finance committee said they weren't happy to hear about the raise after being told by JaxPort officials during the budget review process there wouldn't be any raises.
