City Council to vote on pay hike

first_imgSANTA FE SPRINGS – City Council members will vote tonight on whether to raise their pay from $838 to $924 per month. Officials put the raise on the council’s agenda at the Nov. 9 meeting, a day after City Council elections. If approved at tonight’s meeting, the raises will go into effect before the three re-elected council incumbents are sworn in Dec. 20. “What happened two years ago is we were in the middle of budget problems and the council wanted to establish in the minds of employees that they were willing to defer a pay increase until things improved,” said City Manager Fred Latham. Councilwoman Betty Putnam, who seconded the motion for the council pay hike at the Nov. 9 meeting, said the increase still doesn’t adequately compensate members for all the time they invest. “I seconded it last time to get it going, but I need to think about it a little more,” Putnam said Wednesday. “It’s interesting to note that we are on the City Council because we want to do it, but it doesn’t pay. We spend more than we make.” Although city councils typically wait until after an election to seek pay hikes, the Santa Fe Springs council’s raises are within law because they go into effect before the incumbents are sworn in to new terms in office, City Attorney Steve Skolnik said. “The way the law works is that pay increases can go in after an election when new terms begin,” he said. “This is a pay increase of 5 percent, provided by government code. It’s very common. The council would have done this two years ago, but they decided to put it aside.” Cal State Fullerton political science professor Barbara Stone said that introducing a pay raise ordinance before an election makes it a more selfless act. “(The law) makes the assumption that as long as an election intervenes, you’re not doing it for yourself because there’s no guarantee you will be there,” said Stone.
