22-001CRC 14.3Council CompensationCRC- Agenda ItemCOUNCIL COMPENSATION The City Council has recommended that, among other topics, the Committee research and consider preparing a Charter amendment to increase Council member compensation. Currently, the Charter allows for the establishment of Council compensation in accordance with formulas set forth in state law. For a city the size of Santa Rosa, state law allows for Council member salary of up to $800 per month. State law allows for an annual increase in salary of up to 5% (not compounded). State law also allows the city’s voters to approve a higher salary. The voters of Santa Rosa have approved a higher salary for the Mayor, currently equal to $1200 per month (150% of Council member salary). The Committee began its discussion of Council compensation at its December 15, 2021 meeting. This agenda item will allow the Committee to continue that discussion. Staff will present an outline of options for setting Council compensation and will provide information on comparable cities.   Not available Video Video
