SUMMARY:

 

The City Charter under Section 4.01- Mayor at 4.01 (c) - Compensation states:

 

                     The salary compensation of the Mayor shall be set by ordinance, which shall take effect

                     upon the Mayor assuming office following the next Mayoral election.

 

Ordinance No. 08-10 and codified under Section 2-2-8 currently sets the Mayoral salary at $100,000 per year; this amount has not been adjusted since 2010.

 

For comparative purposes, Florida Municipalities functioning under a Mayor-Council form of government finds the following Mayoral salary (with population in parenthesis):

 

Apopka (41,542) -- $150,000                                                                                    Hialeah Gardens (21,744) -- $115,655

Plantation (84,955) -- $117,221                                                               W. Palm Beach (99,919) -- $150,000

Notwithstanding any recent adjustment.  There are limited comparables within the State that meet Pensacola’s criteria.

This item seeks to raise the Mayoral salary from $100,000 to $125,000 per year.
