Kitimat mayor and council explore salary options

Kitimat’s mayor and council are looking at how their salaries are calculated.

Staff was asked to look at salary formulas and how Kitimat compares with other areas with similar populations.

Mayor Phil Germuth says currently their raises are calculated by the Consumer Price Index.

He believes it would be best if a committee of residents played a vital role in determining if the mayor and council get raises.

Members of council are currently paid $12,596 while the Mayor is paid $30,631.
