Commission recommends raise for mayor, council

city council city council

A Salary Review Commission is recommending the salaries of Toledo's Mayor and Toledo City Council members to increase.

On Thursday, all six of the commission members at its meeting approved recommending increasing the mayor's salary from $122,400 per year to $136,000 per year, which would restore the cut made to that salary four years ago.

The commission is also recommending salaries for council members to go from $27,500 per year to $32,500 per year, based on council not receiving a bump in pay for the past decade.

Only one commission member, Jon Stainbrook, opposed the council pay increase proposal.

The recommendations will be forwarded to council, which will decide whether or not to accept those recommendations. If approved, the new salaries for the mayor and at-large council members will go into effect in 2014, and the new salaries for district council members would go into effect in 2016.
