As City of Lynnwood staff prepare the 2021-22 biennium budget, the salary commission is seeking input from community members on pay rates for the city’s elected officials and will hold a virtual public hearing Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 6 p.m.
Prior to the public hearing, the salary commissioners will present proposals for the salary of the Lynnwood City Council and mayor. The commission’s first public hearing on the matter was held last Saturday.
Earlier this year, the council members decided to forgo pay raises for their part-time salaried positions as the city faces financial impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Mayor Nicola Smith has also decided not to accept a salary increase, said city spokesperson Julie Moore.
