How much is a councilperson worth?

Do you think Spokane City Council members are underpaid?


Did you know they get paid?

Well they do, $18,000 to represent one of the three districts; $40,000 to be council president.

The City’s Salary Commission is thinking about changing that. This month they have several meetings, will draft a report and make a recommendation on a change for the council.

Whatever they decide takes effect on Jan. 1, because the council doesn’t have to vote on it.

Your first chance to offer an opinion starts at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the City Council Chambers.
