City Council poised to receive raise

Brooksville City Council members tentatively agreed to give themselves a $1,200 annual raise at a budget workshop Wednesday night.

The current salary rates _ council members receive about $4,800 per year, the mayor $6,000 _ have been in place for several years, City Council member Pat Brayton said.

The total cost of the raise will be $6,000 per year in increased salaries, as well as about $2,000 to cover increased benefit payments, Finance Director Lee Huffstutler estimated.

The increase will have to be approved as an ordinance, meaning it will have to pass two votes of the council, said Karen Phillips, the city's director of administration.
