Council salaries will go up with city workers’ wages
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Soon, the Wilmington City Council and Mayor will get raises when city workers do.
On Tuesday night, the council approved the new policy.
Councilwomen Margaret Haynes and Laura Padgett sponsored the resolution that would direct the city manager to apply any future cost of living pay adjustments for general employees to the pay of the mayor and city council.
Elected officials last got a raise in 2006.
