The Salisbury City Council voted last week to increase the salary of public officials in town. They voted to double the mayor’s salary, from $25,000 to $50,000. They also voted to increase their own pay, up to $12,000 for council members, and $15,000 for the council president. Mayor Jake Day has been vocally against pay raises in the past, and will have a chance to veto the change.
