The Sturgeon Bay Personnel Committee will be considering a possible salary increase for elected officials at its meeting on Thursday morning. Dan Williams, chair and District 3 representative, says councilmember David Hayes requested that the personnel committee explore a possible change in compensation for aldermanic positions and the mayor.
The impact of any change would not happen until after the next spring’s election and only for newly elected officials. Williams says councilmembers currently earn $600 a month for their duties and a change in salary has not been done in several years. The mayor makes $850 per month as it stands now. The Personnel Committee will also consider a new fire department part-time fire inspector/fire prevention position at Thursday’s meeting that begins at 10 am in the Second Floor Conference Room at City Hall.
