Morris City Council Members also approved a First Reading of a proposed $500 annual increase in the pay given to the Mayor and to City Council members. Pay has not increased since 2014. City employees are getting a 2.5% increase per year for the next 3 years. Council Member Jeff Miller expressed his support for the increase.
There will be a Second Reading of the proposal at a future Council meeting with a chance for public comment. If approved, the mayor would make $7,000 a year, and City Council members would make $6,000 a year.
