COLUMBIA CITY - The first reading of ordinance 2011-13 took place Tuesday night at the Columbia City Common Council meeting.
The ordinance pertains to the 2012 salaries for elected officials.
Only one adjustment is being proposed: a raise of over $7,000 for the office of the mayor of Columbia City.
Mayor Jim Fleck iterated that the raise has nothing to do with an individual, but rather the position itself.
â€śI see it as compensation for a position,â€ť said Fleck. â€śYou treat it as you would according to any raises or denial of raises.â€ť
The ordinance was amended to specify a $2,500 raise for 2012 and will have itâ€™s second reading at the Dec. 13 meeting.
