Commission Recommends Mayor and Council Salary Increase Question for November Ballot

The Citizens' Commission on Public Service and Compensation (CCPSC) recommends a Nov. 5, 2019, ballot measure to let voters decide on Mayor and Council salary increases. The commission recommends that the City of Tucson's Charter be amended by adjusting the present salary for the mayor from $42,000 per year to $63,128 and increasing the annual pay of Tucson City Council members from $24,000 to $42,081. The Mayor and Tucson City Council still needs to give final approval before officially sending the salary question to the ballot.
