At a special organizational meeting of the Morris School Board held last night at Morris Area Elementary School, board members unanimously voted themselves a $300 annual compensation increase. It had been close to two decades since the last pay increase, a fact which surprised some board members, including Mike Odello.

Board members will now receive $1500 per year, with the Chair getting an additional $500, and various committee members receiving additional money as well. Other members noted that there are many meetings and much work done throughout the year by board members.
