end

body                                                             

 

HEARING REQUIRED:    No Hearing Required      

 

SUMMARY:

 

Under City Charter Section 4.01(c) Mayor, 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 2-1-5 currently sets the Mayoral salary at $100,000 per year; this amount has not been adjusted since 2010.

 

Using the Consumer Price Index calculations to determine the 2022 value of 2010 dollars:

 

                     CPI today                       x 2010 USD value                                           =                     Today’s Value

                     CPI in 2010

 

                     292.296                     x 100,000                                                               =                     $134,046.30

                     218.056

 

Therefore, based on CPI calculations the $100,000 salary in 2010 would be equivalent to a salary of $134,046.30 today. 

 

This item seeks to increase the Mayor’s salary from $100,000 to $134,000.

 

 

 

 

PRIOR ACTION:                     

 

July 21, 2022 - City Council voted to approve Proposed Ordinance No. 31-22 on first reading.

 

March 11, 2010 - Ordinance No. 08-10 passed setting the Mayor’s Salary at $100,000

 

FUNDING:                     

 

Budget:                     $ 100,000                     Salary

                                               64,700                     Benefits

                                          $164,700

 

                     Actual:                     $ 134,000                     Salary

                                                                    86,700                     Benefits

                                                               $220,700

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPACT:

                     

The increased salary will take effect in November 2022 upon the swearing in of the next Mayor.  Currently the Proposed FY23 Budget does not take into account the additional cost, however, should City Council approve this change, the additional salary of $34,000 plus the $22,000 in benefits will be added to the FY2023 Budget prior to the final adoption.
