Voters May Decide If Mayor, Council Members Should Get a Pay Raise

Commission made up of Tucson residents will look at issue and determine whether it will be on November ballot.


The city of Tucson may ask voters in November to decide on a pay raise for the mayor and members of the City Council.

But before that happens, a seven-member commission will look at the issue and determine how much of a raise is warranted.

The City Manager’s office is now taking applications for citizens to serve on that commission. Participants may not be city employees nor can they be related to a city employee.

The commission will meet over about two months at the beginning of next year.
