COLUMBIA CITY — Columbia City advanced a proposed Salary Range Ordinance on first reading, moving it to second reading at the Columbia City Common Council meeting Tuesday.
According to the ordinance, Indiana Code requires the mayor to fix the compensation of each appointive officer, deputy and other employees of the city departments, excluding police officers and firefighters, prior to Nov. 1 for the subsequent budget year upon the approval of the council.
“I think it’s an appropriate range,” said Mayor Ryan Daniel.
Clerk-Treasurer Rosie Coyle said they did not really make any big changes to the ordinance from last year.
Grammatical changes that do not affect the meaning of the ordinance will be made to the ordinance by City Attorney Marcia McNagny as it is moved to second reading.
