Monday night, Goodyear City Council will attend a worksession to discuss... their own salaries.
In the Agenda, City Staff is recommending:
"Staff is seeking guidance on moving forward with establishing an ad hoc Council Compensation Committee. In an effort to provide for an efficient process, staff also seeks Council direction and authorization to select members from existing applications for Boards and Commissions, and conduct meetings as necessary to determine a compensation recommendation. Staff would return to City Council in the fall with a final recommendation on the compensation package for the Mayor, the Vice Mayor and councilmembers." ~City of Goodyear Staff
If it turns out they get a raise, it'll take effect when the next councilmembers are elected in June 2019.
