Council moving forward with salarycommission

The Spokane Valley City Council took its first steps toward appointing a five-member salary commission to look into a possible pay increase for council members.

Back in July, there was public testimony suggesting that the council – which hasn’t received a raise in years – revisit the issue. Currently, council members receive $9,000 per year, which was suggested by a 2006 citizen salary commission.
While council members could vote for their own salary increase, the mood has been toward reinstating a salary commission.

The commission will be appointed by the mayor – and confirmed by the council – and could serve up to a year. Members must be residents of Spokane Valley and registered to vote in Spokane County.

The decision, made unanimously at Tuesday night’s regular meeting, won’t become official until a second reading is approved at a future council meeting.
