Council would make mayor’s salary $30,000

SNOHOMISH — The City Council is prepared to make Mayor Linda Redmon's salary $30,000 a year, up from $18,000.
Five council members came to a consensus at a workshop last week to increase the mayor's salary. The position's salary hasn't changed since 2017.
The actual vote to change the mayor's salary will come in the new year. The increased salary would become effective immediately upon approval.
The council sets the salary for the mayor position in the city, so the amount wouldn't change if a different mayor is elected to the seat in 2025.
The average mayoral pay in comparable cities is $23,244 a year.
The mayor's benefits package includes optional medical insurance plus state retirement. Neither Redmon nor her predecessor John Kartak enrolled in the city's medical benefits, said city human resources manager Rebekah Park.
There were no comments from the public disagreeing with $30,000 a year.
The council did not favor establishing an independent salary commission to set the salary.
