What’s on the agenda: Raise for mayor on the table at tonight’s city council meeting
City council
Dawsonville Mayor and City Council
In final public hearing on proposed charter amendments tonight, the Dawsonville city council could vote to increase the mayor’s base salary by $400. The most recent version of proposed edits to the city charter show the council could vote to increase the mayor’s salary from $600 to $1,000. The raise would go into effect starting Jan. 1, 2020. The new version also nixes any mention of increases to the base salary of city council members, which were included in the initial draft. Language that would increase council member pay by $100 a month was removed and the current base salary of $500 remains.
