Sturgeon Bay mayor, council members set for raises

Future mayors and council members in Sturgeon Bay will make more money for their service beginning with their next term. In the consent agenda of Tuesday’s meeting, the Sturgeon Bay Common Council could approve a $50 a month raise for members and a $100 a month increase for the mayor. Raises cannot occur during an elected term, so even-numbered aldermanic district representatives will see the increase in 2020.  The mayor and odd-numbered aldermanic district representatives will get their raise in 2021. According to the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, Mayor David Ward makes an annual salary of $10,200 while the Sturgeon Bay Common Council’s members make $7,200 a year. The council meets on Tuesday in its chambers at Sturgeon Bay City Hall at 7 p.m.
