The Blue Ribbon Commission has submitted a 105 page report to the City Council with its recommendations regarding salaries and compensation for our elected officials.

Here are the recommendations:

  • Raise the Mayor’s salary to $140,000/year and continue all eligible benefits
  • Raise the City Councilor’s salaries to $14,000/year and continue all eligible benefits but if a Councilor does not participate in the City’s Health Plan, then add an additional $5,000/year in compensation (“equity pay”)
  • Raise the School Committee Member’s salaries to $7,500/year and continue all eligible benefits but if an SC Member does not participate in the City’s HEalth Plan, then add an additional $2,500/year
