According to documents posted by the city, based on state statute city council members monthly salary is based on population. Currently the salaries are set at $600 based on a population between 75,000 and 150,000 people.
The report notes that the city's population passed the 150,000 mark last year and current demographics suggest population growth will continue. Based on this, the statute says the city council members can increase their monthly salary to $800.
According to the report, if the council approve this raise the fiscal impact to the city would be $12,000 annually. Next week's meeting starts at 6 p.m.
