The City Council at its meeting Thursday will consider final adoption of proposed pay increases for the mayor, city councillors, and School Committee members. The mayor’s pay would rise from $94,933 to $105,000, effective July 1. Councilors’ pay, currently $7,466, would be set at 9 percent of the mayor’s salary, effective in January 2014. Based on a mayoral salary of $105,000, the councilors’ pay at that time would be $9,450. The pay of School Committee members would rise from $4,000 to $5,100. The council will also hold public hearings on special permit applications from Sunoco to replace existing manual price boards with electronic boards at Sunoco gas stations at 1 Lynn St. and 144 Newbury St. (Route 1 south).
