Council approves pay hikes

City council members Tuesday adopted three ordinances raising pay for councilmen and the mayor.
The ordinances do not take effect until the next term of office for all members and the mayor.
The ordinance increased the four single-member councilmen’s monthly pay from $500 to $650, and the at-large elected mayor pro-tempore to $750. The council receives $150 in expense funds authorized by a separate ordinance currently in effect.
