Council Passes Pay Ordinance in the Dark

When the city council voted on Wednesday to authorize large salary hikes for directors and other top city officials, it did so without evidence that the increases were necessary. According to Ward E Councilman James Solomon, who along with councilmen Rolando Lavarro and Jermaine Robinson, voted against the ordinance, the ordinance’s sponsor, Mayor Fulop, failed to present any evidence that the pay raises were needed.
