Taneytown council to vote on raises for future officials

March 16, 1998

Taneytown City Council is scheduled to vote next month on an increase in salaries for the mayor and council elected next year.

A vote on proposals to increase the mayor's compensation from $2,400 to $4,800 a year and council members' pay from $30 per meeting to $1,800 a year is scheduled April 13. The council will meet at 7: 30 p.m. in the city office, 17 E. Baltimore St.

A staff study of elected officials' salaries in comparable municipalities showed that none are paid per meeting.

City manager Charles "Chip" Boyles said elected officials' pay was last increased 10 years ago.
