More Q&A on a pay raise for Mayor Mark Stodola

Posted By on Fri, Jul 5, 2013 at 1:18 PM

City Attorney Tom Carpenter continues to answer questions from the city board related to the proposal to raise Mayor Mark Stodola's $160,000 annual pay by 12 percent so it'll match the pay given City Manager Bruce Moore. The memo linked her was released under FOI.

One item of interest: Carpenter says it is unclear whether voters' referendum power would extend to a pay raise ordinance. Another is that, once raised, it wouldn't be possible to reduce the pay, not even for a green new mayor.
