MARTIN E. "MIKE" CURRAN, who is retiring after 19 years in the City Council, has performed one last public service. He has introduced a bill that would grant salary increases for the mayor, council president, comptroller and all the 18 council members.Last year, a commission spent six months reviewing those salaries and made a similar recommendation. But politicians, scared of their re-election prospects if they voted increases for themselves, shelved the proposal.The commission urged that the mayor's salary be hiked from $60,000 to $100,000, the council vice president's salary from $30,500 to $40,000 and other council members' pay from $29,000 to $35,000.
