FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — A resolution has passed at Fresno City Hall that would give council members and the mayor a 69 percent pay raise.
The ruling happened Thursday morning at Fresno City Hall with a 5-2 vote.
Newly-elected council members would have their salary go from $80,000 a year to $135,000 a year.
The mayor’s salary would jump from $130,000 to $219,000 a year.
The resolution was designed to make a city council member’s salary equal to that of Fresno County supervisors.
While the proposal came from Council Vice-President Tyler Maxwell, he would not be eligible for the raise unless he wins a second term.
