Members of the Portland City Council have unanimously approved a 1.5 percent pay increase for themselves and for Mayor Michael Brennan and City Manager Mark Rees, despite objections from some city residents. The Portland Press Herald reported Tuesday that residents urged the officials meeting Monday night to reject a pay hike in solidarity with many in the city who are struggling in a down economy. City councilors will see an increase of just under $100 in their current annual compensation of $5,600. The mayor’s annual salary of $65,400 will increase by $981. The city manager will see his $143,000 annual pay increase by $2,145.
