October 19, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Members of the Anne Arundel County Salary Standard Commission have drafted tentative recommendations for council salaries.

Chairman Frederick C. Sussman said yesterday commission members agree that salaries for the next council, members of which will take office next year, should receive an increase of $7,500 to $15,000. The commission is expected to report its recommendations to elected officials Nov. 19.

The annual salaries for council members and officers range from $28,600 to $33,000.

The Salary Standard Commission met with six of seven council members recently to discuss job duties and compensation. Only Odenton Democrat Bill D. Burlison declined to meet with the commission.
